Overview

This bridge is currently closed, and is being repaired by the Florida DOT. It is scheduled to reopen in September 2017. 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.

By all means if you don't have a boat, or if you can't afford a charter boat check out the fishing from the bridge. Tarpon are common, maybe a hammerhead or two. Use steel leaders. And you don't have to fight the crowds at Mallory...More

I always enjoy looking over at the Old Seven Mile Bridge as I drive across the "new" one. It is especially cool if you take the time and read its history. It is a true marvel.

I guess the new high way is called "New Seven Mile Bridge". As one drives along you can see the old bridge. It is cool to see our eternal battle against the elements. From the other posts I see the bridge is being restored, but...More

You will have a pretty view of the water when you drive over this bridge. It is a little nerve wracking to drive on in the rain or in traffic.

What a beautiful place to see. You can run here from the Hyatt or Marriott and enjoy sunset or sunrise! A nice little park at the beginning. New additions are happening now.

The bridge is closed. It was interesting to see how the bridge changed from one end to another. I was shocked to see several trees growing from the top. We passed under the brigpdfe on our way out to sombrero reef. I understand there is...More

Every time we travel the overseas highway it seams like a little bit more of the old bridges are slowly fading into history ( actually falling into the ocean.... or being removed) . You can get good views of this one from the southern end...More

No unfortunately it is still closed for construction and will be for many months yet. Now you can cross the seven mile and walk out on the old seven mile from that end. This is not as long of a walk and you can't reach... More

The bridge is supposed to open at the end of May 2017 for a short time and then the final repairs (which are estimated to take 1400 days) will begin in November 2017.

I would suggest that you check out the local party boats in the Keys - for fishing and they have bathrooms! Stop at the Chambers of Commerce for suggestions. There is one in Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon and Key West... More
