MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A Marquette County man is the grand prize winner of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s “Share Your Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk Story” contest.
Michael Gronseth of Negaunee won a trip to the top of the Mackinac Bridge after the photo he shared on the MDOT Facebook page was chosen at random.
The contest called for people to post their bridge walk memories and photos from this and previous years on the MDOT Facebook page. More than 90 memories were submitted, including 34 photos and five videos.
People from Michigan and all over the country, including Minnesota, Ohio and California, shared their memories of walking on the Mighty Mac over the years.
Gronseth will be able to take the tour of the top of the bridge sometime in 2013.
