Coast Guard Creates Temporary Security Plan for Mackinac Bridge Walk


The Coast Guard is putting a temporary security zone in place around the Mackinac Bridge in preparation for the 2017 Annual Labor Day Bridge Walk.

The zone will be enforced starting at 6 a.m. on Monday until the event finishes.

It includes closing off all waters to recreational vessels within a quarter of a mile around the Mackinac Bridge.

Commercial vehicles will need a valid Coast Guard certificate of inspection in order to access those waters.
