Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) again will meet virtually Thursday, Oct. 1.
The MBA Finance Committee is scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. followed by the MBA’s regular board meeting at 10:30 a.m. The meetings will be conducted on the Microsoft Teams platform. Items on the agendas, available on the MBA website at https://www.MackinacBridge.org/MBA-Board/Schedules-Agendas-And-Minutes/, include traffic and revenue reports, information about ongoing maintenance on the bridge, and an update on the bridge’s toll software upgrades.
Both meetings will be available for public viewing and commenting through YouTube (with closed captioning) at https://youtu.be/gFyFtqrwl2k and Livestream at https://livestream.com/mdot/mbameeting10012020. Comments can also be e-mailed to MBAMeeting@Michigan.gov; e-mails received before 3 p.m. Wednesday will be provided to the board prior to the meeting.
Due to concerns about gathering large groups that might speed the transmission of COVID-19, the MBA is meeting electronically in accordance with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Executive Order No. 2020-129, which gives temporary authorization for remote participation in public meetings and hearings.
