Aboard Aeon Episode 13: Racing the Clock to Our New Home in Key West

As we race the clock to our new home in Key West, we leave Marathon and travel on the Atlantic Ocean. We experienced some rocky seas which left Aeon a mess. The boat was not prepared for three-foot seas. We pass the seven-mile bridge and head straight to Key West.

Seven Mile Bridge

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Seven Mile Bridge is a bridge in the Florida Keys, in Monroe County, Florida, United States. It connects Knight’s Key (part of the city of Marathon, Florida) in the Middle Keys to Little Duck Key in the Lower Keys. Among the longest bridges in existence when it was constructed, it is essential for the Overseas Highway in the Keys, which is important for the 2,369-mile (3,813 km) U.S. Highway 1. It has a leeway of 65 feet (20 m) beneath.

There are two bridges in this location. The modern bridge is open to vehicular traffic; the older one only to pedestrians and cyclists. The older bridge, originally known as the Knights Key-Pigeon Key-Moser Channel-Pacet Channel Bridge, was constructed from 1909 to 1912 under the direction of Henry Flagler and Clarence S. Coe as part of the Florida East Coast Railway‘s Key West Extension, also known as the Overseas Railroad.
