March Traffic Report

Posted on May 14th, 2021

Kim Nowack, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 229,227 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of March compared to 177,904 in 2020.
For the month of March, traffic was up 28.8% and fare revenue was up 17.7% compared to last year.
Traffic and revenue declined dramatically in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Compared to March 2019, traffic in March 2021 was down 5,270, or 2.2%, and fare revenue was up by $10,384, or .7%.
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.
