About
This place is temporarily closed, and is being repaired by the Florida DOT. It is scheduled to reopen in 2022. In the Florida Keys, there is no name better known than Henry Flagler who built the world-famous Oversea Railway in the early 1900's. Called the "8th Wonder of the World", this amazing ribbon of steel and concrete forever changed the history of the Florida Keys.

Oh Fred...
Apr 2021
You can't help but notice the rickety bridge next to the one you are driving on. At one point, you also can't help but notice a fairly large tree growing out of it, waaaaay out in the middle of nowhere. Apparently, locals have named this tree Fred, and it is decorated annually. Why does the thought of this make me all warm and fuzzy?

Viewed the bridge while traveling to Key West - Amazing structure and history. Hope to see more of the bridge up close during next trip to the Keys.

It's an old bridge

Neat historic landmark, makes you wonder what the model A's and T's looked like driving across it way back when. Be sure to notice the trees and bushes growing on the concrete, how is that possible?

Get ready for a long and beautiful ride.

Most of the bridge is over fairly shallow water so you can see how clear the water is. Plus almost 1/2 way across, you can see Pigeon Key. Read up before you go. Interesting history

Fishing is Great!

Rent a boat and fish for some scamp. You can drift or anchor out. Live bait works well. Both sides of the bridge work well.

Looks To Be Under Repair

Driving down the new seven mile bridge, the old bridge seems to be undergoing repairs, so hopefully, in the next few years it will be a walking/biking path that runs alongside the traffic bridge. Would be a shame to tear it down.

Great to look at from the new bridge. Fun to bike or walk on when open. Looking forward to going out to pigeon key without taking a boat. There is a lot of equipment and material on the bridge so I hope that the repairs are done soon.
