Caption: Mackinac Bridge
Additional Description: Photo taken at Bridge View Park, St. Ignace. Looking at the causeway and Mackinac Bridge to the lower peninsula (Mackinaw City). From the Michigan Department of Transportation website: "The sheer size and beauty of the Mackinac Straits Bridge still impress first-time viewers. The bridge's total length, 8614 feet, the longest in the western hemisphere, combined with towers standing 552 feet above the water line, a 155 feet clearance under the bridge, and a total weight of 11,840 tons, is indeed an impressive sight." When built it was the longest bridge in the world.
