As measured by the longest main span, the Mackinac Bridge is about 19th in the world today, but the number of spans leading out to that honest one are numerous, so it traverses a lot of water, quite minimized in this foreshortened shot across part of Mackinaw City.

This unit will be rolling across for over 10 minutes.

I’m not sure what work Champion is accompanying here.

Fresh paint makes the Mighty Mac especially beautiful these days,

and that work

is ongoing, as can be seen on the northern tower.

 

I can imagine concentration is a must for this work,

tuning out whatever traffic happens on the road as well as

like Mesabi Miner, a thousand-footer shrunk by the Mac, happening beneath the road.
