Historic Goldenrod Footbridge in Newport Beach, California

Out & About

Before I went to Newport Beach a couple of weeks ago, I got out all my travel books to plan my attack for seeing as much as possible in a short time frame.

One of the things that was going to be close to where I was going to be was the Goldenrod Footbridge. Looks like this:

The plaque on the right post tells us just everything that average person wants to know:

Of course, you know that I’m not average….

Sadly, the only other information I could dredge up on the bridge is that it underwent seismic upgrades in 2011 to ensure that it could withstand a “large seismic event.” While original construction costs amounted to $10,884, the seismic retrofitting cost $140,000.
