If you plan to cross the Mackinac Bridge, you may be required to have a wind escort.
The Mackinac Bridge Authority issued the wind escort status for “high profile vehicles” after strong gusts were recorded in the Straits area.
Examples of high profile vehicles include pickup trucks with campers; cars with small boats, 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 in height.
Drivers are being asked to reduce their speed to 20 mph as they approach the bridge and be prepared to stop.
Bridge personnel at both ends of the span will give further instructions.
