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.
