Newcomers to town tend to call it ‘the fourth bridge,’ which is incorrect. The city of Cedar Key is made up of several keys, collectively known as Cedar Key, or in the old days, Cedar Keys. While it is the first bridge coming into town, depending on where you start counting, it could also be the fourth going out of town. However, that has nothing to do with the name of the bridge. The name comes from the time before Florida was a state, and was divided numerically into military districts. If you look on old maps you will see that a rectangular piece of land on the mainland leading to the bridge was ‘No. 4′ – that is Florida Military District 4. When I have flown out of Orlando or Tampa I have noticed that the planes will fly north along the west coast of Florida, and then turn roughly over Cedar Key to go to Atlanta, or wherever they are headed. For this reason we often have an inordinate amount of contrails in the sky.
