Florida Keys Overseas Highway
The Overseas Highway is a 127.5-mile (205.2 km) long road carrying U.S. Route 1 through the Florida Keys. Completed in 1912, the entire roadway of the Overseas Highway was substantially rebuilt in the 1980s. Locations along the Overseas Highway from Key West to Key Largo are commonly given as &Mile Markers&. Numbering starts in Key West, and increases towards the East and Northeast up the path of the highway over the keys. Businesses along the highway began listing their locations by &Mile Markers&, adding decimal parts to more precisely indicate locations between mile marker signs.
