Seven Mile Bridge

Florida Keys visitors and residents are again cycling, walking, running, rollerblading and watching sunrises and sunsets along a section of the famed Old Seven Mile Bridge that parallels the Florida Keys Overseas Highway in the Middle Keys. Nicknamed “Old Seven,” the oft-photographed 2.2-mile span reopened Jan. 12, 2022, to pedestrian recreation. The date marked 110 years since the bridge’s original debut as the centerpiece of railroad magnate Henry Flagler’s Florida Keys Over-Sea Railroad, which connected the Keys with each other and mainland Florida for the first time. The 2.2-mile span serves as the gateway to historic Pigeon Key, a tiny island nestled beneath the “Old Seven” that was once home to about 400 workers constructing the railroad.
