The Hathaway Bridge along U.S. Route 98 (US 98) connects Panama City with Panama City Beach, Florida.[1]

History[edit]

Constructed in 2003, it replaced previous bridges that were unable to carry the increasingly high number of users.[2] The original Hathaway Bridge replaced the St. Andrews Bay Bridge, and was completed in 1959. In 1997, the state of Florida issued more than $80 million for construction of the new Hathaway Bridge.[2]
