1938The tons of explosives, concrete and steel used to create the five spans of the bridge system only hint of the tremendous efforts to create the bridge system. Glad of getting work in the Great Depression, the workers took any job they could and laboured long hours in all kinds of weather. They took only 16 months to complete the construction. Astonishingly, they had finished 10 weeks ahead of schedule. And the $3,050,000 spent to build the system came in under budget! What they achieved would be amazing even if they had the use of today's technology.
