Being from Michigan I sometimes take the awesomeness of this bridge for granted but it really is more beautiful (and longer) that the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It is just not as well known because it is so far off the beaten path....More

I have lived in Michigan my entire life, but I never tire of the view. Whether driving across the bridge or viewing it from one of the many viewing areas, it is a beautiful site.

Shame on you Michigan. $4.00 US. $8.00 CDN. Double for Canadians. Every toll we paid at other locations were reasonable when converted from US to CDN.

Beautiful views and lots of scenic things to do on the other side. Must see Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point. This is a toll bridge, but only $4.00/vehicle each way.

This bridge is a special experience for all Michigan residents. It connects the UP with mainland Michigan (the mitten). There are great sites to see in the UP and good accommodations.

We drove over and then came right back over just so the kids could see it. We then took the ferry to the island with a bridge tour so they could see under it as well. Great piece of history for Michigan!

It would be impossible to predict. Likely get best current info from MDOT website. I know one thing, . . unless you like tractors, 1500 of them will cross 9/7/2018 for annual event.
