Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Little Card Sound Bridge, FL
Card Sound Bridge is located on the southern tip of Florida. It connects Florida City in Miami-Dade County to Key Largo in Monroe County and crosses over a body of water called Little Card Sound. While construction for the bridge began in 1922, what was at the time a wooden drawbridge was only completed in 1928 due to damages done by a hurricane in 1926 that necessitated a redesign and rebuild of the bridge.

It is an important bridge as it is one of only two points of entry to and from the Florida Keys.
