Not a chance, but the main street is quite busy.

Here you have more information:

Maybe old timer, but not an old rig

A series of photos motoring in fog under the "Mighty Mac."
FYI, The Mackinaw Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in North America.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Man does seem to to build the grandest things but I still won't cross on that if my life depended on it. In fact in the event my life would be in danger and I had to cross, I'd swim. Is this the one that was built by a a pair of famed tycoons? Can't recall there names?

Don't think it was Tycoons, but I can tell you from anchor to anchor it is 5 miles long.


It is very impressive and yes massive. It is one of those strange sights when sailing, you see the bridge and start thinking "We are almost there." Than you look at the GPS or chart and realize, "We are over 30 miles away!"

We had the same thing when we passed at it this summer. Saw it coming up at 10:30 at night and didn't pass under until 4:30 am. Very trippy in the dark with the reflectors under the bridge guiding you in like an airstrip.

Here's after we passed under and had to circle for a few hours until there was enough light to go into Mackinac Island.
