After the 2020 edition of the annual Mackinac Bridge walk was canceled due to concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mackinac Bridge Authority is warning walkers that this year's setup could leave them stranded if they don't plan ahead.
If you've ever driven across the Mackinac Bridge, you know that it can be a white-knuckle experience. Crossing it at night can be even more harrowing. Watch this video taken at night by a popular Michigan Tik-Toker.
This is what is probably the perfect "Michigan" gift for someone special in your life. And, unlike fudge, which will stay on your hips for years, a piece of grating from the Mackinaw Bridge is a great conversation starter and something you can display proudly anywhere, at home or at work.
Recently, I had the opportunity to go for a 1000 mile motorcycle ride across Michigan. One of the destinations was a stop at White Fish Point in the UP on Lake Superior. To get there, I had to ride across the Mackinaw Bridge.
After a virtual public meeting on Tuesday morning, Mackinac Bridge Authority is still tentatively planning to hold the annual Labor Day walk. But at this time, the walk will only take place if 70% of the state is vaccinated.
