Brief Mackinac Bridge Closure Scheduled

The Mackinac Bridge will be shut down briefly this weekend. 

It’s part of a major painting project that is just getting started on the bridge’s south tower.

The bridge will be closed between midnight Friday and 3 a.m. Saturday to install scaffolding for the project.

A two-year painting project on the north tower wrapped up last year.

A similar two-year project is just getting started on the south one.
