There will be some lane closures and probably some back ups this week on the Mackinac Bridge as a new project gets started. The new project will entail rescue training with local emergency services agencies as they are preparing for a new painting project on the Mackinac Bridge’s north tower.

Work has started on the $6.3 million project to strip old paint from the north tower and repaint it with a lead-free paint. The bridge will have single-lane closures with traffic shifts during the training.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority says the training is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday at the bridge. More about it and their future plans Here.
