ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - The Mackinac Bridge has reopened after being closed for the afternoon due to perilous weather.

Motorists are advised to lower their speed. Certain vehicles still must be escorted, including trucks and anything pulling a boat or camper.

Snow and wind earlier Friday caused 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 six vehicles were involved in a slow-speed crash.
