## Outer Harbor Crossing: Francis Scott Key Bridge

The Francis Scott Key Bridge, a high-arcing cantilever bridge opened in 1977 as the Beltway's final link, carries I-695 over the lower Baltimore Harbor and Patapsco River, and it provides an attractive option to motorists who wish to avoid downtown Baltimore. The toll bridge lies in the southeastern section of I-695, and although it is formally called the Outer Harbor Crossing, this stretch is still known as the Beltway, like the rest of I-695. The Outer Harbor Crossing was first signposted as MD 695 because it was a substandard four-lane expressway, but improvements to the road have allowed the entire Beltway to be signed as I-695. On a clear day, the bridge is visible from downtown Baltimore and other various points in the city (particularly in the southwestern part of it). Unlike the Fort McHenry or Harbor Tunnels, HAZMAT trucks are allowed to cross the Key Bridge.
