Today, as part of recognizing Labor Day, Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II led the annual walk across the Mackinac Bridge. “It was an honor to represent the state of Michigan at the 65th annual Mackinac Bridge walk,” said Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist II. “This Labor Day, I am proud to celebrate the dedicated union laborers who built the Mackinac Bridge and united our two peninsulas. Governor Whitmer and I will continue standing tall for working people in Michigan and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.”
The bridge was closed to vehicles from 6:30am until 12:00n to allow the annual event to take place.
