Coast Guard to impose waterway restrictions during bridge closure

Flickr User Keith Ewing

As an additional security measure, the Coast Guard will implement new waterway restrictions around the Mackinac Bridge during the annual bridge walk.

Waters within the security zone will be closed Monday morning to all recreational vessels. Commercial vessels with a valid Coast Guard Certificate of Inspection will be allowed through.

Commercial vessels looking to pass through should call the Coast Guard at least an hour in advance in order to get proper permission.

The restrictions will be in place from 6 am until the end of the bridge walk.

For more information call the Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie at 906-635-3227
