MORE ABOUT THE BOB GRAHAM SUNSHINE SKYWAY BRIDGE
Amassing 18 awards since its opening in 1987, the Sunshine Skyway was the longest segmental cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere when it opened. As a cable-stayed bridge with single pylons and single planes of stays, the Skyway was also the first of its kind in the United States.Built with immense strength to withstand ship collisions and hurricane-force winds, the Skyway’s 1,200-foot-long main span is made of precast, 95-foot-wide and 220-ton concrete segments, both record-breaking sizes at the time of construction.
