Quite the view from up top..Also a partial remembrance of the previous bridge as a fishing pier..Windy days and riding a motorcycle are an experience..

Woo-hoo! It’s a bridge! I used to drive over this bridge all the time when I lived here, but I guess my familiarity with it blinded me to the idea that my kids might think it was cool. It’s a pretty neat bridge and they...More

An amazing sight!!!! If you get the chance to view this bridge at night from the side, you will find it breath-taking. The lights are so pretty.

The cash lane is the one place the traffic will back up often. If you get a SUNPASS, you drive through the quicker lanes and your pass is billed. I believe the toll is $1.25 each way, but I use a SUNPASS, so I haven't had to... More
