When the Mackinac Bridge was built it was the longest suspension bridge in the world, and is still one of the longest. It connects the lower peninsula of Michigan with the upper, and is quite a thrill to drive across. This is a picture story of the construction of the 'Mighty Mac'.

It is almost 5 miles across the entire span. Tipped in are two certificates for participants of the 1981 Labor Day walk, led by then Gov. William G. Milliken. There are also two newspaper articles tipped in, about the bridge walk for that day.
