High Wind Warning

A High Wind Warning is currently issued for the Mackinac Bridge.

The warning was issued after strong winds were recorded in the Straits area.

Overnight the Mighty Mac was closed to high-profile vehicles for a couple hours due to weather conditions.

Right now, the warning is for vehicles especially vulnerable to high winds. Those include: pickup trucks with campers, motor homes, vehicles pulling trailers and enclosed semi-truck trailers.

Drivers are instructed to reduce their speed to a maximum of 20 miles per hour, turn on their four-way flashers, and use the outside lane.

Officials also ask that drivers have masks on and payment ready.
