What is the official color of the Golden Gate Bridge? Burnt Sienna, International Orange, Vermillion or California Poppy. The distinctive color that helps the bridge stand out in the fog is called International Orange.
Some call it singing. Some call it humming. Some call it musical and many call it annoying but one thing they can all agree on is that San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is making a noise.
Last year bridge officials made changes to a sidewalk safety railing on the western side of the structure. They installed thinner slats so more air could flow through and they said they knew the bridge would sing when there were high winds. The tonal or organ like sound can be heard for miles away.
According to a bridge spokesman, some people think it's quote, "meditative" and "angelic" but officials say most people don't like it. And while their design change was reportedly necessary to keep the bridge safe, other workers on the Golden Gate say they're developing a fix for the sound which they'll discuss in the months ahead.
