MACKINAW (WJRT) - (07/04/17) - The stars and stripes are hung proudly Tuesday over the Mackinaw Island Bridge's south tower.

The 30 foot by 60 foot flag was purchased last year, but due to weather restrictions the flag was not hung until Memorial Day this year.

Mackinaw Bridge Authority Executive Secretary Bob Sweeny says, "the Authority is proud to honor the flag in this way".

The flag will be displayed on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, and The Fourth of July.
