Say goodbye to the “humming” coming from the Golden Gate Bridge.
The loud humming sound began when slats along the bridge’s railing were changed to a narrower version about a year and a half ago. The sound could be heard from miles away on really windy days.
Engineers have come up with an aluminum clip that will be attached to all 12,000 slats on the ocean side that will reduce the noise by about 75%. The clips were tested in a wind tunnel, and will cost about $450,000 to install.
The work should be completed by next year.
