April Traffic Report
Kim Nowack, Bridge Director of the MBA, reported today that 231,805 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of April compared to 257,000 in 2021.
For the month of April, traffic was down 9.8% and fare revenue was down 12.9% 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 64-year-old National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
