Sunshine Skyway Bridge celebrated with new stamp

The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Florida with a Priority Mail® stamp. In the stamp artwork, the bridge rises from the vivid blue water of Tampa Bay and is silhouetted against an orange sky.

The date of the stamp issuance has yet to be determined.

The bridge was one of the first major concrete-and-steel, cable-stayed bridges in the United States. Completed in 1987, the main bridge and approach spans stretch more than four miles across Tampa Bay and link the Gulf Coast communities surrounding St. Petersburg and Bradenton.
