Replacing the existing 5-foot, 7-inch high fence and railing with a taller, 8-foot, 6-inch high fence and tighter chain link mesh eliminates large gaps and lessens the opportunities for debris and other objects to fall from the bridge onto the freeway.
The new, taller fence eliminates gaps and reduces the potential for objects to leave the bridge and enter I-5 traffic below, making travel safer for the 138,000 motorists who drive this section of highway daily.
