It’s official! The state’s newest license plate, featuring one of Michigan’s best known landmarks, the Mackinac Bridge, is now available for purchase at all branches, according to Secretary of State Ruth Johnson. The plate features the imposing Mackinac Bridge – at five miles long it’s the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere – against a colorful sunrise and the deep blue waters of the Straits. “The Mighty Mac is a symbol of American ingenuity and has a place in the hearts of Michiganians,” said Johnson. “It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve seen it, that moment when it comes into view, it’s still breathtaking.” The Mackinac Bridge plate will gradually replace the state’s Spectacular Peninsulas plate, first issued in 2007. It also features the state’s Pure Michigan branding. The new Mackinac Bridge plate costs $5 in addition to regular registration fees. As with other Michigan license plates, the new Mackinac Bridge plate will be made by prisoners at a correctional facility in Adrian.
