December Traffic Report

Robert J. Sweeney, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 197,287 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of December compared to 210,450 in 2015.

For the month of December, traffic is down 6.3% and fare revenue is down 4.0% 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.
