Additional Details:
This bridge which spans the famous entrance to the harbor, the Golden Gate, is the longest single span suspension bridge in the world. It is 1 3/4 miles over water and 7 miles with approaches. It links northern California with the peninsula of San Francisco. The southern end passes over old Fort Winfield Scott, built in 17776 but which never tried a hostile shot.
