Ice Closes Mackinac Bridge
The Mighty Mac had to close down again, due to falling ice. It seems like that would have been a pretty scary ride across the five mile span with ice chunks falling from above.
It was an unusual move for the bridge Authority to have to close the bridge, but with the size if the ice chunks it was the safe thing to do. Today the Bridge was closed down to all traffic until conditions improved, which it did and motorists were advised to lower speeds down to 20 mph and should be prepared to stop.
As of 9 this morning conditions over the Straits of Mackinac were brisk and windy. A high wind warning is in effect for those crossing.
