MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -- New plans are in the works for the Mighty Mack. 

A $200 million deck replacement for the Mackinac Bridge is expected to begin in 2018.

The project on the five-mile long bridge will be funded through bridge toll revenue.  

The executive secretary for the Mackinac Bridge Authority made the announcement Monday.  

He hopes the funding will increase as more tourists visit the UP.
