Golden Gate Bridge Road Zipper

This is the Barrier Transfer Machine (BTM) repositioning the new Moveable Median Barrier (MMB) on the Golden Gate Bridge in in San Francisco, California. The Moveable Median Barrier (MMB) system is about 13,340 feet of 12-inch wide and 32-inch high steel clad units filled with high density concrete pinned together to form a semi-rigid median barrier. There are two barrier transfer machines, aka “zipper” trucks. This replaces, and is a vast improvement over, the old yellow plastic pylon divider system, which you can see still in partial use here to block off some lanes at the toll plaza.
