Sunshine Skyway Bridge
Spanning Tampa Bay
Interstate 275
St. Petersburg, Florida 33701
Voice: 727-464-7200

The new Sunshine Skyway Bridge opened in 1987 with a state-of-the-art design. It is four miles of superstructure that is awe inspiring with a vertical clearance of 193 feet. In 1980 one of the worst disasters involving a bridge in the United States happened when a freighter rammed into the bridge during a blinding squall and knocked out a large section. The new bridge is designed to withstand impact of a large tanker doing 10 knots!
