Expect delays if you are traveling over the Mackinac Bridge this weekend.

The Mackinac Bridge is one of the most-recognized symbols in Michigan. Tourists flock to the bridge each year just for the view of, and from, the miles-long bridge. 

As part of our series, Take This Job and Love It, Steve Keene met with someone whose job gives him a slightly different view of the Mighty Mac.

The American flag flies over the Mackinac Bridge six days every year. The flag is thirty feet tall and sixty feet long and officials say it takes an entire crew of people to raise Old Glory. In the past, the bridge would shut down so the flag could be raised.

Pieces of the Mackinac Bridge could be yours. Officials said over the next few weeks original pieces of the “Mighty Mac” will be auctioned.
