Overseas Highway is the rebuilt system of the Henry Flagler’s railway bridges. The building itself started in 1905 and finished in 1912. The hurricane, passing there in 1935, destroyed the major part of the road, and, after the long reconstruction, the ex-railway turned into the highway.

The longest bridge of the Overseas Highway of the Florida Keys archipelago and of all the world in general – the Seven Mile Bridge.

Seven Mile Bridge – is the symbol of Florida Keys, and, with no doubts, the most impressing bridge of the Overseas Highway. There were filmed such Hollywood blockbusters as “2 Fast 2 Furious”, “Mission Impossible 2”, “I and number four” and “Licence to Kill” – the 16th film of the world-famous “bondiana”, the adventures of famous James Bond.
