ST. IGNACE, Mich. (CBS DETROIT/ AP) — Details about plans for this year’s traditional Labor Day walk across the Mackinac Bridge have been released by officials.
Last year, the Mackinac Bridge Authority made big changes to the annual bridge walk, including adding start points at both ends of the bridge to eliminate the need for buses to take people back across. The bridge was closed to most vehicles during the 2017 walk for security reasons.READ MORE: Michigan Gas Prices Increase 19 Cents Ahead Of Memorial Day
