The Mackinac Bridge in Michigan is one of the longest bridges in the world. Occasionally, in windy weather, it can move as much as 35 feet from side to side, so driving on it can be frightening. However, if you feel uncomfortable about the idea of driving over the bridge, we strongly advise you to stop at the yellow phone booth before crossing the bridge and call 906-643-7600 for help. One of our crew members will then drive you across, so you’ll enjoy your trip without worrying. There is no additional fee for this.

“Good morning. I’m looking for a covered bridge in this area. Do you think you could help me find it?” said a man to Francesca, who was standing near the porch.
“I’ll be glad to guide you there,” answered Francesca, and climbed into his pickup. “Turn right,” she pointed.
“I’m Robert Kincaid, a photographer working for National Geographic. I’m here to take pictures of covered bridges in Madison County. I’ve located six of them, but I guess there’s at least one more, and it’s supposed to be out in this direction.”
“I think it’s the Roseman Bridge you are looking for,” said Francesca. After half an hour she said, “There it is.” The old bridge with a red roof sat across a small stream. Robert Kincaid smiled.

The authorities didn’t put off the opening ceremony for a bridge over a canal in the small town of Jested, although the bridge was a metre too short. They discovered this four days before the ceremony. However, the invitations had already been sent, so the official opening of the bridge took place at the previously announced time.
“We ordered a bridge to go from one side of the canal to the other. Someone made a mistake during the construction and now the bridge can’t be used. Engineers say it will be ready in two months. But we won’t organise a second ceremony,” the mayor of Jested said.
