MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - A portion of a highway in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has reopened after temporarily being closed due to heavy snowfall and white-out conditions along Lake Superior.

State police say M-28 between Munising and Marquette was back open to normal traffic about 5:30 p.m. Monday. It was shut down about 10:30 a.m.

High winds also prompted authorities to temporarily close the Mackinac Bridge to all vehicles except passenger cars, passenger vans and empty pickup trucks.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority says winds were more than 50 mph on the bridge.

It later issued a high-wind warning and said pickup trucks with campers, motor homes, vehicles pulling trailers and enclosed semi-truck trailers were vulnerable.

Motorists were being instructed to reduce their speed to no more than 20 mph.
