Bridge district to rip out bricks; patrons feel ripped off

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

imageThat walkway made of commemorative bricks that thousands of people paid to have inscribed with the names of loved ones in honor of the Golden Gate Bridge’s 50th anniversary back in 1987 was supposed to be forever. Or, as it turns out, until today, when the Golden Gate Bridge authority is having the walkway demolished. They say it’s necessary to comply with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. Understandably, lots of folks are steamed, says the Chronicle’s John Wildermuth. The photo is from a Marin IJ piece that ran Sunday.

Add: Sort of reminds you of AT&T’s ‘fee free credit cards for life’ back in the ‘90s. They lasted about five years, as I recall.
