Posted on October 8th, 2019

Kim Nowack, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 639,291 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of August compared to 608,996 in 2018.
For the month of August, traffic was up 5.0% and fare revenue was up 3.8% 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 61-year-old National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
