Seven Mile Bridge To Close Saturday For Annual Keys Race


Seven Mile Bridge on the Florida Keys Overseas Highway will close down to traffic early Saturday morning in order to support some 1,500 participants who will be participating in the annual Seven Mile Bridge Run footrace. 

Keys law enforcement officials plan to halt vehicles just after 6:30 a.m. for the course of the run. Traffic flow should resume at 9 a.m.

The annual race began in 1982 to mark the completion of a federally funded bridge rebuilding program. 

Situated on the longest of the bridges that connect the Florida Keys together, the course is marked as being a total of 6.8 miles long.

According to a Facebook event for the race, "the field is officially full!" and no other participants are able to sign up at this time.
