Barrier construction to begin on Cold Spring Bridge

Construction begins Monday on a barrier that officials hope will prevent people from jumping off a local bridge.

Dozens of people have committed suicide off the Cold Spring Bridge on Highway 154 in Santa Barbara County.

Caltrans will install a grid mesh barrier along both sides of the bridge.

Construction will last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

There will be one-way traffic control during that time.

Crews hope to finish the barrier by September.
