The Golden Gate Bridge is found arching over the entrance to San Francisco Bay. It was built from 1933 to 1937 and was regularly repainted. But after people and with no one around to repaint or to cross the bridge, how long will it stand?
100 Years after People: After a century without maintenance, the bridge's trademark scarlet color peels down. After two or more steel cables fail due to moisture from fog and rain, the remaining cables soon snap and the whole deck collapses into the waters of the San Francisco Bay below. The top of the northern suspension tower is also brought down with the main collapse of the bridge.
200 Years after People: Only skeletal spectre of the Golden Gate Bridge tower remains, but soon the tower will collapse as well.
- When the bridge was seen again 300 years after people in Bound and Buried, it was shown that the Southern Tower collapsed instead of the Northern Tower.
