Building the Mackinac Bridge

The Mackinac Bridge - also known as "Mighty Mac" - is a truly incredible structure. Built in 1957 and designed by David Steinman, this bridge connects the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan. At 5 miles long, it is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world, and it's history is fascinating. Evergreen Club member Jacquie S. has written a book on this bridge, and recently shared a wonderful presentation for us - we highly recommend both!
