Bruce and Maria Bentley’s 14th Bridge Walk

REGION- For safety and security, the Mackinac bridge was closed from 6:30 a.m. to noon on Labor Day to all public vehicle traffic except emergency vehicles for the annual Bridge Walk.  

The walk began at 7 a.m. in both St. Ignace and Mackinaw City. Walkers had to be on the side of the bridge they wish to return to before 10 a.m. or walk the entire length of the bridge, starting from either end, crossing the midpoint by 10 a.m. Over 35,0000 individuals took part in this once-a-year event.
