Posted on October 2nd, 2020

Kim Nowack, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 605,225 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of August compared to 639,291 in 2019.
For the month of August, traffic was down 5.3% and fare revenue was down 6.3% 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 62-year-old National Historic
Civil Engineering Landmark.
