If we're talking about the span on 41. (the one that everybody walks or jogs on) It's 1.1 miles. I clocked it from the beginning of the walkway to the end.

How many people walk or run the bridge? I started back running on the bridge. I moved to miami for a year and now I am back. I started back in march after I moved back but my leg muscles were in pain. So I've been running the treadmill. I started running the bridge on saturday, jan 19 2013. I used to do At most 30 minutes but this time after a long time I did 42:39. I need to get my groove back. Now I am down to 40 minutes and want to beat that time. Any way I pondered this site because I wanted to know how long was the pg bridge. I see people put a 1.1 miles or 3/4 miles. I run on the southbound bridge which is the longest and it is marked. As I am running I see start/end 1 mile then I see a quarter then a half which makes it a total 1 and 1/2. So I think the other half of the bridge is a mile and a half too which is a total of 3 miles one way. I ran to and fro which is a total of 6 miles. What do you think?

It definitely is if you drive over it backwards!! Try that!
But, only after you've had a few! Everyone will understand then, when you tell them your trying to "save miles."
