February Traffic Report

Robert J. Sweeney, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 197,625 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of February compared to 193,726 in 2016.  For the month of February, traffic is up 2.0% and fare revenue is up 3.1% compared to last year.  The Mackinac Bridge Authority has scheduled a substantial amount of long-term preservation work for the bridge over the next several years. These major efforts will ensure that the bridge continues to remain structurally sound and provide a safe crossing for everyone.  The MBA’s sole source of funding is from tolls and fees collected at the Mackinac Bridge. All revenue collected is used to maintain, operate, and protect the 59-year-old National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
