The operators of the Mackinac Bridge are warning there could be big traffic backups the morning of Labor Day.
The bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic for about five and a half hours during the annual Labor Day bridge walk. That’s because of security concerns. The decision was made after terrorists drove cars and trucks into crowds in London, Stockholm, and Paris.
Bill Gnodtke chairs the Mackinac Bridge Authority. He says it’s become harder to guarantee safety where large crowds gather.
“So, we’re all working as hard and diligently as we can.”
