(KNC 1070) -- The city of Pasadena is putting up additional fencing on its Colorado Street Bridge after the fourth suicide this year on that notorious bridge.

The temporary fencing erected on the bridge last year to deter people from jumping to their deaths isn't enough, say officials with people still managing to use it to end their lives.  

She says the cost of the work is nearly $300,000 dollars. This fall Pasadena will be excepting bids from consultants to design a long-term solution to the problem.
