ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - Vintage snowmobiles will be allowed to cross the Mackinac Bridge during a special event.

The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway and the St. Ignace Visitor’s Bureau are teaming up to host the ride Saturday.

MLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/2htanue ) only snowmobiles at those least 25 years old can participate. They must be outfitted with wheel kits, and the wheels must be at least 2 inches wide without studs or cleats. There’s a fee of $35 per snowmobile.

Participants will leave their machines in Mackinaw City and drive their trailers to the north end of the bridge in St. Ignace. A shuttle will return participants to their snowmobiles.

It’s believed this will be the first time snowmobiles will be allowed to cross the bridge linking the Lower and Upper Peninsulas.
