Mackinac Bridge Experiences Heavy Traffic Over Holiday Weekend

The holiday weekend meant traffic on Michigan’s most popular bridge.

The Mackinac Bridge had heavy traffic and congestion today with travelers going back and forth between peninsulas.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority warned this morning, “Expect heavy traffic, congestion, and back–ups for several miles, approaching the bridge for the next several hours.”

A live cam of the bridge on shows the stream of traffic throughout the day. According to the bridge authority, last July was the second–most trafficked month of 2020, with more than 572,000 bridge crossings. August was first with more than 605,000 crossings.
