August Traffic Report

Posted on September 19th, 2018

Robert J. Sweeney, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 608,996 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of August compared to 594,396 in 2017.

For the month of August, traffic is up 2.5% and fare revenue is up 1.3% 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 60-year-old National Historic Civil
Engineering Landmark.
