Caltrans announced Thursday it has scheduled two public meetings for the South Bay community to review potential suicide deterrent systems that could be installed on the Coronado Bridge.

The meetings are scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, Aug. 9,  from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at San Diego Continuing Education’s Cesar Chavez Center, 1901 Main Street in Barrio Logan
  • Thursday, Aug. 10, from 6 p.m. ti 8 p.m. at the Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue in Coronado

Caltrans has begun a 10-month feasibility study of how fences and other barriers could be used to deter suicidal people.

Last year 17 people jumped to their death from the bridge that spans San Diego Bay.
