The Verrazano Bridge in Maryland is a bridge on Maryland Route 611 over Sinepuxent Bay that connects Assateague Island to the mainland. Like the larger and more famous Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, it is named for Giovanni da Verrazzano. The crossing contains two spans, one carrying automobiles and the other carrying pedestrians and bicycles.[2]
