Niles Channel Historic Bridge to Experience Closure
FLORIDA KEYS - The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Niles Channel Historic Bridge along the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail (FKOHT) will be closed until further notice due to deterioration.
The bridge, located at Mile Marker 26 between Ramrod and Summerland Keys, is closed at both ends due to visitor safety concerns. Visitors wishing to continue to fish in the area should use the South Pine Channel Historic Bridge to the north at Mile Marker 28 or the Kemp Channel Historic Bridge to the south at Mile Marker 23.
The Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail features 23 historic bridges and more than 70 miles of existing trail paved in segments along a planned, 106-mile corridor from Key Largo to Key West. For more information, visit FloridaGreenwaysandTrails.com.
