Key West to Miami Highway, 1935

An interesting look at the construction and expansion of Highway US 1 from Key West to Miami. When it was completed in 1938, the highway marked the beginning of an incredible adventure for the North American motorist, who could now travel 113 miles of roadway and cross 42 bridges to travel from Miami to the southernmost point in Key West. In 1982, 37 bridges were replaced with wider spans, including the well-known Seven Mile Bridge at Marathon.
