Seven Mile Bridge, Knights Key to Little Duck Key

The Seven Mile Bridge was one of the longest bridges in the world at the time it was built. It connects Knights Key in the Upper Keys with Little Duck Key in the Lower Keys.

There are actually two bridges in this location. The older bridge was built between 1909 and 1912 and it was originally known as the "Knights Key-Pigeon Key-Moser Channel-Pacet Channel Bridge". that bridge is still used to access Pigeon Key, but it no longer spans the Moser Channel of the Intra Coastal Waterway. The new bridge does not provide access to Pigeon Key. The newer bridge, known as the "Seven Mile Bridge", was built between 1978 and 1982.It is nearly seven miles long, it has 440 spans, and it rises 65 feet in the center so boats can pass under it.
