How many bridges connect the Florida Keys?

42

Each with it's unique personality, the 42 bridges that connect the land masses from Key Largo to Key West are a spectaular marvel of engineering and sheer will.Origininal and New 7 Mile Bridges

Most of the original bridges have been replaced but the original 100 year old + 7 Mile and Bahia Honda Bridges still grace our waters though long since have been decommissioned.
The Original Bridges were build for Henry Flagler's Overseas Railroad with the 2 mile Long Key Bridge being the first
Bahia Honda Bridge

I would have to say that the Bahia Honda is my personal favorite and was the most difficult to erect because of the intense and swift currents
Do yourself a Favor and take a ride over our 42 bridges.  They will astound you with their beauty and grace.
