Exclamation US 2 Closure

Not that any of you would be driving past St. Ignace , but just an fyi about the weather conditions. US 2 is currently closed from here to M-77. If you are coming up this weekend (or are already here), please stay safe!

US 2 Closed

OK, so 9 and 10's site had I75 listed closed as well, but apparently there was some confusion about that, here is a more useful link

Yep, they just closed the Bridge.

Damnit, we gotta let them know we want you guys to come up, and then stop HERE. I would expect it to open back up this afternoon, NOAA says winds are supposed to be on the decline starting at 3PM today.

Still not sure on I-75. US-2 apparently had over 20 accidents before they shut it down.

If you are caught on the South side, hold up at the Keyhole, and get some good ribs.
On the North side, Driftwood, Mackinac Grill, VI, Freds (bowling alley), or Timmys Pub will be happy to serve you.

Pretty sure George's is working hard to get the cars off the bridge. Apparently there was a bit of a pileup on the causeway due to the lack of visibility. Have seen the flatbed come by my office a few times...

MACKINAC CO. -- The Mackinac Bridge is closed after a crash by the toll booth on the north side of the bridge.

According to the Mackinac Bridge Authority, the crash involved about "half a dozen" vehicles and happened around 11:30 a.m.

No injuries have been reported.

The Bridge Authority reports they are seeing complete white out conditions, which factored into the decision to close the bridge as well.

It will be closed until further notice.

US-2 is also closed from St. Ignace to Manistique.

They are starting to escort across the bridge now. It will probably be a while before trailers are allowed but it is progress.
