Florida Factoid Friday

When first completed in 1989, the Dame Point Bridge
became the longest cable-stayed span in the United States,
the longest concrete span of its type in the Western Hemisphere,
and the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the world.

Pretty! Obviously it's in Fla., but what city? Very nice...I'm enjoying your facts!

Jena, I'm glad you enjoyed the link. I love bridges, so it was really fun for me.

SwampAngel, it's in Jax. The DOT link has pics of it and some other pretty bridges around the state, including the Dodge Island Bridge in Miami.
