STRAITS OF MACKINAC (WNEM) -

A wind escort is required if you plan to cross the Mackinac Bridge.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority notes that the area is experiencing winds strong enough to require an escort of certain “high profile” vehicles across the Mighty Mac.

Examples of high profile vehicles include pickup trucks with campers, cars with small boats, vehicles with bicycles or luggage attached to the roof, Ryder or U-Haul trucks, any vehicle pulling a boat, semi-tractors with enclosed trailers, and all trailers with side walls over two feet high.

Drivers are asked to reduce their speed to 20 mph as they approach the bridge and be prepared to stop.
