Has the Golden Gate Bridge ever been closed?
Yes, the Golden Gate Bridge has been closed three times before, all three times the closures were due to weather conditions.
On December 1, 1951 winds reached speeds of 69mphs on the bridge and the bridge was closed for three hours.
On December 23, 1982, 70MPH winds closed the Bridge for almost two hours.
On December 3, 1983, winds of 75MPH again forced a closure of the Bridge for the longest period in the Golden Gate Bridge’s history, 3 hours and 27 minutes.
All three times the Golden Gate Bridge sustained no damage from the high speed winds.
The Bridge was also closed very briefly for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and President Charles de Gaulle of France.
