SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – A Golden Gate Bridge lovers who paid for a brick on the commemorative walkway that marked the span’s 50th anniversary will soon see their memories turned to dust.

More than 7,000 people bought the bricks to mark the birthday in 1987, only to see them removed 25 years later because the path does not comply with federal disability laws.

The Golden Gate Bridge District owns the property and says that re-grading and other improvements need to be made.

A new panel installation at the site will list the 7,500 or so names, but for some that still won’t be enough – and want their brick back.
