Francis Scott Key Bridge

This outer crossing of the Baltimore Harbor opened in March 1977 as the final link in I-695 (the Baltimore Beltway). Including its connecting approaches, the project is 10.5 miles in length. In January 2000, the Authority completed an $89.5- million project to replace the northern approach's former two-lane viaduct with an at-grade, four lane roadway.

More than 12 million vehicles used the bridge during fiscal year. The E-ZPassSM electronic-toll-collection system is available at the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Click here for additional information about the system.
