Mackinac Straits Bridge
This engineering masterpiece, one of man's truly great
achievements, forms a 4-lane ribbon of highway over the
turbulent straits of Mackinac between St. Ignace and
Mackinaw City, Michigan. Its contribution to the
economy of Upper Michigan and the North Country cannot
help but be significant. The overall length makes it
the longest bridge of its type in the world. Opened in
November of 1957, it carries thousands and thousands of
vehicles between the two great peninsulas of Michigan.
