Kevin Cassidy of A2Z fencing and Mike Vernon of Interwest Construction Inc., work on some of the braces on the suicide barrier on the Eighth Street bridges in Port Angeles.
Taller fencing went up on the north side of the bridges Friday. The $771,000 project is expected to be completed on both sides by Friday, Sept. 14.
The chain-link fence is vinyl coated with support bars on the outside of the barrier and metal spikes on top to deter birds.
The barriers, including the new fence atop the existing 32-inch concrete obstruction, will vary from 8 feet, 8 inches high to 10 feet, 7 inches high from the sidewalk to the top of the fence.
The fencing is being added after a series of suicides from the spans.
