  • Title: About the Bridge - Mackinac Bridge Authority
    Descriptive info: The Mackinac Bridge is currently the fifth longest suspension bridge in the world.. In 1998, the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan became the longest with a total suspension of 12,826 feet.. The Mackinac Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere.. The total length of the Mackinac Bridge is 26,372 feet.. The length of the suspension bridge (including anchorages) is 8,614 feet.. The length from cable bent pier to cable bent pier is 7,400 feet.. Length of main span (between towers) is 3,800 feet.. The width of the roadway is 54 feet.. The outside lanes are 12 feet wide (2), the inside lanes are 11 feet wide (2), the center mall is 2 feet wide, and the catwalk, curb and rail width is 3 feet on each side - totaling 54 feet.. The stiffening truss width in the suspended span is 68 feet wide making it wider than the roadway  ...   to accommodate wind, change in temperature, and weight.. It is possible that the deck at center span could move as much as 35 feet (east or west) due to high winds.. This would only happen under severe wind conditions.. The deck would not swing or sway but rather move slowly in one direction based on the force and direction of the wind.. After the wind subsides, the weight of the vehicles crossing would slowly move it back into center position.. The steel superstructure will support one ton per lineal foot per roadway (northbound or southbound).. The length of the steel superstructure is 19,243 feet.. Each direction will, therefore, support 19,243 tons.. The answer is 38,486 tons (2 x 19,243 tons).. Location.. History of the Bridge.. Facts & Figures.. Rules & Regulations.. Fare Schedule..
