The Seven Mile Bridge, MM 47, linking the Middle and Lower Keys by crossing a channel between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, was the longest segmental bridge in the world when built in 1982. It rises 65 feet for boat clearance, the highest point in the Florida Keys, with breathtaking views. And it runs parallel to Flagler’s 1912 railroad bridge which has arches reminiscent of a Roman aqueduct and portions that are still accessible to pedestrians and bicyclers.
