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. Due to more storm damages over the eyars and fire damages from a fire in 1944, the original wooden drawbridge was removed and then rebuilt in 1969. It is an important bridge as it is one of only two points of entry to and from the Florida Keys.
