ST.IGNACE, Mich. — After a closure caused by falling ice, the Mackinac Bridge has been cleared and is now open to travelers.

For the past week, the bridge has been closed off and on as chunks of ice fell to the road below. It was closed for nearly 7 hours on Sunday.

Crews were sent to the bridge with plow trucks, trying get the ice to vibrate free from high up on the structure. Meanwhile, the Mackinac Bridge Authority tweeted regular updates on the status of the bridge.
