      $200M deck replacement planned for Mackinac Bridge

      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 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.
