  听力原文

  The Golden Gate Bridge is celebrating its seventy-seventh anniversary. The bridge opened to vehicle traffic on May 28th, 1937. Since then, more than two billion vehicles have crossed the world famous structure between San Francisco and Marin County, California. As many as 112,000 cars make the trip each day. (16) The Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension span in the world, at the time it was built. The suspended roadway stretches 1,280 meters between the bridge's two tall towers. Today it still rates among the top ten longest bridge spans in existence. Mary Currie works for the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District. She says the bridge is one of the most extraordinary engineering projects of all time.

  (17) The Golden Gate Bridge is named after the Golden Gate Strait. That narrow passage of water connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. Joseph Strauss was the chief engineer of the Golden Gate Bridge project. Work began in 1933. The project took four years to complete. The bridge is 2,788 meters long from one end to the other. It is 27 meters wide. Two large cables pass over the top of the bridge's towers. These structures stand 227 meters above water and 152 meters above the road. Each cable holds more than 27,500 strands of wire. The Golden Gate Bridge weighed 811,500,000 kilograms when it was completed in 1937. The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper called the finished project, "a thirty-five million dollar steel harp!"(18) Architect Irving Morrow gets credit for the bridge's bright orange color. The Navy wanted the bridge painted in yellow and black. The Air Force had suggested red and white.

  16. Which one is true about the Golden Gate Bridge?

  17. How did the bridge get its name?

  18. What made architect Irving Morrow a special person to the bridge?

  听力译文:

  金门大桥迎来了它的77岁生日。它的开始通车时间是1937年5月28日。迄今,在这座闻名世界、贯通加州三藩市和马林县的大桥上通行过的车辆已超过20亿。而每天从这里经过的车辆就多达11.2万。金门大桥最初建成时期是世界跨度最大的悬索桥。两座桥塔之间的桥身长达1280米。在现存悬索桥中仍跻身前十。玛丽·居里在负责大桥事务的金门大桥高速公路和交通运输区工作。她说金门大桥是有史以来最令人称奇的建筑工程。

  金门大桥名字来源于联通旧金山海湾与太平洋的狭长水道——金门海峡。负责金门大桥建造项目的总工程师是约瑟夫·斯特劳斯。工程始建于1933年,工期四年完成。大桥总长2788米,宽27米。两座耸立的桥塔高出水面部分为227米,与桥面距离为152米。桥塔顶端是两根大直径钢缆。而每根钢缆上又连接了27500根钢绳。1937年大桥竣工之时,金门大桥总重81.15万吨。《旧金山纪事报》 称金门大桥为“一座价值三千五百万的钢竖琴。”当时海军为金门大桥桥身选择的颜色搭配是黑黄,空军则是红白。而最终建筑师艾尔文·莫罗敲定的国际橘色广受赞誉。
