May Traffic Report

Posted on June 23rd, 2021

Kim Nowack, Executive Secretary of the MBA, reported today that 360,956 vehicles crossed the Mackinac Bridge during the month of May compared to 222,071 in 2020.
For the month of May, traffic was up 62.5% and fare revenue was up 47.2% compared to last year.
Traffic and revenue declined dramatically in May 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Compared to May 2019, traffic in May 2021 was up 7,803, or 2.2%, and fare revenue was down by $12,282, or -0.6%.
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.
