Queen Isabella Causeway

Pretty neat right? This bridge is the only road connecting from the mainland to South Padre Island. Photo was taken during our escapade to SPI.

The two-mile long Queen Isabella Causeway, located in southern Cameron County, Texas. The Causeway was opened in 1974 and replaced the previous bridge which had also been named Queen Isabella Causeway. A central section of the original causeway has been removed and it has been renamed the Queen Isabella State Fishing Pier. The Causeway is the 2nd longest bridge in Texas, stretching 2.37 miles (3.81 km) across the Laguna Madre.
