the world's most spectacular roads

 

Located in Florida, the Seven Mile Bridge is an iconic bridge in the Florida Keys. This 7 miles long and 65 feet high bridge links Knight’s Key to Little Duck Key and has been featured in several films and television series.

The bridge links Knight's Key (in the Middle Keys) and Little Duck Key (Lower Keys) and it’s part of the scenic Overseas Highway. It’s a 2-lane bridge causeway — one lane each way — . Stretching out into the open sea, it’s one of the longest bridges in the world. For good reason too, it makes a spectacular landmark as it stretches out over the blue sea below.

 

The current road bridge was constructed from 1978 to 1982. It’s certainly breathtaking and it has a fearsome reputation.The bridge itself doesn’t seem that scary. But its position in the Florida Keys makes it a prime target for the region’s many hurricanes. In fact, the current bridge is the second iteration. The newer bridge scrapped the swing span concept of the original in lieu of a sturdier 65-foot-high arch to allow boats to pass by. While it may be sturdier, we still wouldn’t want to be on it during a storm. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

  

It’s quite a famous bridge having appeared in a lot of movies, with a starring role in action thrillers Licence to Kill, True Lies, The Haunted Mansion, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Mission Impossible III, I Am Number Four and Leverage, the Florida Keys’ Seven Mile Bridge looks as impressive on film as it does in real life.
