The FEC is renowned as the railroad that built the first railroad bridges to Key West that have since been rebuilt into road bridges for vehicle traffic.

The original railroad bridges turned highway bridges have all been replaced by new highway bridges although the old bridges
are still in place. Most of the old bridges are not accessible for walking or for vehicles. The old railroad bridge to Pigeon
Key is still in use but the public is not allowed to drive their vehicle over this bridge.
Actually this makes the ride in a car down to the keys even more interesting as you can appreciate the construction work
that took place in building this wonder and a good view from the highway bridges. Just look where you are going while also
looking at the old railroad bridges.
