Suicide jumps have been taking place from the George Washington Bridge at a record rate this year, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will be continuing preventive measures.

A large fence will be part of upcoming GWB refurbishments.

The New York Post reports that the Port Authority will be installing a 9-foot fence on the GWB as part of refurbishments to its suspension cables and walkways. Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman said the plan is part of a $1 billion project to improve the walkway’s pedestrian and bicycling areas.

Thirteen people have died jumping from the George Washington Bridge so far in 2014, according to NorthJersey.com, while 40 have been rescued. A record of 18 people jumped in 2012, while 43 were saved. There were 16 deaths in 2013, and 37 people were rescued, according to Port Authority police.
