Following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, the Golden Gate Bridge District conducted a seismic evaluation of this iconic span located less than 3 mi from the San Andreas fault. The District determined the bridge could not reliably survive a repeat of the Great 1906 San Francisco earthquake and elected to undertake a multi-phase retrofit of the structure and foundations.
