Kim Nowack, Bridge Director of the MBA, reported today that 499,255 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of September compared to 488,209 in 2020.
For the month of September, traffic was up 2.3% and fare revenue was up 1.6% compared to last year. Compared to September 2019, traffic in September 2021 was up 37,572, or 8.1%, and fare revenue was up by $126,125, or 5.1%.
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 63-year-old National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
