May Traffic Reports

Kim Nowack, Interim Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 353,153 vehicles
crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of May compared to 353,243 in 2018.
For the month of May, traffic was down by ninety vehicles and fare revenue is down 1.1%
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.
