GLASS BRIDGE

The Glass Bridge Construction of the Skywalk began March of 2004 and is estimated
to be completed by 4th quarter of 2006.
Glass Bridge will be suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River on the very edge
of the Grand Canyon. On May 2005, the final test was conducted and the stucture
passed engineering requirements by 400 percent, enabling it to withstand the weight
of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes (more that 71 million pounds).
The bridge will be able to sustain winds in excess of 100 miles per hour from 8
different directions, as well as an 8.0 magnitude earthquake within 50 miles. More
than one million pounds of steel will go into the construction of the Grand Canyon
sky walk...


GREAT THINGS ARE DONE WHEN MEN AND MOUNTAINS MEET,
THIS IS NOT ACHEIVED BY JOSTLING IN THE STREET...
