Atlantic Coast

Starting at the Statue of Liberty and winding up at free-wheeling Key West, these almost 2,000 miles of roadway run within earshot—if not sight—of the Atlantic Ocean.

Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel

One of the more impressive engineering feats on the East Coast is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel ($15 toll during peak season), which opened in 1964 at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and was effectively doubled in 1997 by the addition of an extra set of driving lanes. Almost 18 miles long, the structure consists of one high-level bridge, two deep tunnels, four islands, and many miles of raised causeway. Two miles from the southern end of the bridge, a fishing pier and restaurant operate on man-made Sea Gull Island.
