ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) — The Mackinac Bridge Walk is returning this Labor Day after being canceled last year because of the pandemic.

The 5-mile-long suspension bridge linking the Michigan's Lower and Upper Peninsulas will be restricted to foot traffic from 6:30 a.m. to noon ET on Sept. 6.

Walkers will start from both Mackinaw City and St. Ignace at either end of the span.

Participants can start any time between 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. There's no fee or registration.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will join the walk at 7 a.m. starting at St. Ignace and ending at Mackinaw City.
