Caltrans has scheduled two follow-up community meetings to update the general public on an ongoing feasibility study that examines potential suicide deterrent systems on the San Diego-Coronado Bridge (State Route 75).

In August, Caltrans held the first round of public meetings regarding the 10-month feasibility study that looks at how fences or 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.

During the upcoming meetings, attendees will learn about progress made and next steps; comment and feedback are welcome.

The “open house” format will feature display boards and the opportunity to ask questions of Caltrans staff who will be in attendance.

Meeting dates:

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 5-7 p.m.

Coronado Community Center

1846 Strand Way, Coronado

and

Wednesday, Nov. 15, 5-7 p.m.

Cesar E. Chavez Campus at San Diego Community College

1901 Main Street, San Diego
