Mechanical Issues Thwart Unveiling Huge US Flag On Mackinac Bridge

At a glance

  • Mechanical issues led to this year’s annual Labor Day Mackinac Bridge walk to go on without the 30’ x 60’ flag hanging from the north tower of Michigan’s Mackinac Bridge.
  • According to a Facebook post by Aaron Thompson, the cousin of Joe Shampine, the maintenance supervisor on the bridge, the flag, which is usually rolled up and brought down to hang during designated holidays, had been unrolled and rerolled back up a few weeks ago and that led to the cam on the mechanism breaking which bent the shaft.
