Update – Ways to view and comment on May 13 Mackinac Bridge Authority special meeting

Posted on May 12th, 2020

Mindful of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) will meet in an online special session at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, to discuss the Annual Bridge Walk currently scheduled for Labor Day.

The meeting will be conducted on the Microsoft Teams platform. The meeting will be available for public viewing and commenting through YouTube at https://youtu.be/-tjXBvEGcQg or Livestream at https://livestream.com/mdot/mbameeting05132020. Comments can also be e-mailed to MBASpecialMeeting@Michigan.gov; e-mails received before 2 p.m. Wednesday will be reviewed by 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. 2020-75, which gives temporary authorization for remote participation in public meetings and hearings.

If you are interested in hearing the special meeting discussion leading up to the decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Bridge Walk, you can watch the recorded version on YouTube  or Livestream.
