The bridge generally runs north-south; the approaches to the bridge carry the State Road 293 designation while the bridge itself carries the TOLL 293 shield.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Mid-Bay Bridge by using our Miramar Beach trip app.
The bridge crosses Choctawhatchee Bay, part of the Intracoastal Waterway. It was constructed in 1992-93, when the Florida Department of Transportation recognized the growing need for a more direct route between the Destin beaches and the mainland for tourists and to assist hurricane evacuation from population centers and resorts on the Gulf of Mexico.
There is one toll plaza at the north end of the bridge. As of October 1, 2015, the one way toll for a standard 2-axle vehicle was $4.00 with cash, and $3.00 with the SunPass electronic toll system.
Mid-Bay Bridge reviews
It's a nice bridge.Traffic can be bad, especially on peak weekends. Be sure to have your Sunpass or wait in line with the tourists. more »
You can drive slowly over the bridge and if traffic is stopped, grab a few pics from the bridge...without getting out of the car. Great views of harbor and bay side. more »
Price isn't bad and saves you a 45 min trip
