Pieces of original Mackinac Bridge grating up for auction
ST. IGNACE, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Many of us cross The Mighty Mac every day but did you ever think you could own a piece of the iconic bridge for yourself? Well, now is your chance!
The Mackinac Bridge Authority is auctioning off a section of the original steel grating from the bridge's deck.
Seven individual, identical pieces of the grating are being sold.
The MBA said each piece is approximately 5 1/2 feet wide, 38 feet long and 5 inches deep.
Each piece weighs about two tons.
Even though most of the original lead-based paint is gone, buyers will have to sign a "Hold Harmless Agreement."
Bids started at $160.
The auction is being held online by GovDeals and ends April 19.
