GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE PLANS DISCLOSED
December 29, 1922
CHICAGO, Dec. 29.—J. B. Strauss, one of Chicago's best known civil engineers, has made public his plans for the erection of a bridge across the Golden Gate at San Francisco, which he has drawn up in conjunction with M. M. O'Shaughnessy, San Francisco's city engineer.
Hitherto the bridge, the central span of which will be no less than 4,000 feet in length, has been looked upon as a wild flight of imagination, but recent advances in engineering and bridge design have been so great that the proposed construction is now a practical proposition, if and when erected, the structure will be the greatest in point of magnitude and span in the world.
