ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - Bad weather has temporarily closed the Mackinac Bridge.
Snow and wind are causing problems at the north end of the bridge where a causeway leading to the span sits just above the frozen water. Bridge chief Bob Sweeney says both lanes of traffic have been closed since shortly before noon Friday when six vehicles were involved in a slow-speed crash.
Sweeney says the bridge could reopen by late afternoon. Low visibility has led to hazardous driving conditions.
