The final find of our Long Key-area benchmark blowout was Q 69 RESET. It is located on the northern wingwall at the western end of the old Long Key Viaduct (now a fishing pier). The current U.S. Route 1 bridge is directly north of the old bridge; this mark can be accessed by parking in the lot for the fishing pier and walking to the section of the old wingwall between the two bridges. The disk is in good condition.
