MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Plans are in the works for a $200 million deck replacement for the Mackinac Bridge that’s scheduled to start in 2018.

Robert Sweeny is executive secretary for the Mackinac Bridge Authority. WLUC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/KBG9TN ) that he gave an update Monday on the bridge that connects Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas at a meeting of the Economic Club of Marquette County.

Projects for the five-mile-long bridge are funded through toll revenue. Sweeny says he hopes that funding will increase as more tourists visit the Upper Peninsula.
