San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge sounds like a nonstop Halloween attraction right about now — because it keeps on howling anytime there’s a breeze … and it’s freaking people out.
The iconic structure has been making A LOT of noise lately, and Twitter took notice Friday … with Bay Area residents filming a drive/ride-through along the bike paths. Basically, there’s a constant loud humming sound emanating throughout — which can be heard for miles.
No, it’s not ghosts or spirits that have been conjured up from the waters below … it’s just the wind making contact with some fancy new devices local engineers just put in. They’re new railing slats covering the edges of the bridge — to help fight off wind resistance — and when gusty air rolls through (which is pretty much always there) … this is the end result.
So, yeah … the bridge is plagued by this eerie singing/siren calling for the time being. Doesn’t look like city officials have addressed a fix for now — but something tells us if enough people complain, they’ll have to do something.
Move over, New York … there’s a new city that never sleeps.
