This bridge, which links Upper and Lower Michigan, has 4$ toll. There was a good viewing site just before turn onto the interstate when travelling from the north. Plenty of information online about the structure

Allowed a great view. Must be really interesting when the lakes freeze. There is a toll, so be prepared to stop for that.

We traveled across the Bridge to stay in St. Ignace early on a Saturday in October. Always love the view when the Bridge appears while heading north from the lower penninsula.

We were excited to drive over the iconic and impressive Mackinac Bridge. It was an extraordinary bridge with stunning lake views. It was a toll bridge.

It's very nice. It's a lovely view out over the water. Can't wait 2 go back. The bridge is a toll road. It's lovely at night.

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.
