MBA To Discuss Labor Day Bridge Walk February 16

The plans for the 2018 Mackinac Bridge Walk will be discussed at the upcoming Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) meeting Friday, February 16. The meeting will be held at 8 a.m. at Little Bear East Arena in St. Ignace.

At their meeting in November 2017, MBA members asked for chambers of commerce and visitors bureaus in St. Ignace and Mackinaw City to take over funding the Labor Day Walk, which the MBA has hosted since 1958. For the first time last year, the bridge was closed to vehicle traffic during the event because of safety concerns. The rising transportation costs associated with busing participants prompted the MBA to ask communities to pay for the event. St. Ignace and Mackinaw City are expected to provide proposals at the meeting, which will be a regular full board meeting of the MBA.

Preceding the full board meeting, the MBA Finance Committee will meet at 3 p.m. Thursday, February 15, at the MBA Office in St. Ignace.
