    Default Police escort times over the bridge

    I know atv's need a police escort over the lift bridge, I'll be up there with a group of 5 starting next weekend. What are the times during the day that the police will escort atv's across the bridge? Thank u!

    9:15am, 2:15pm, 7:15pm times are not guaranteed as police work comes first. Call ahead and make arrangements even a day or two ahead. Houghton 906-482-2121, Hancock 906-482-3102. Please be patient and be sure to thank your escort

    My experience is, on a the weekend anyways, Houghton police are pretty good about being there to take you across, Hancock police, not so much. So we just drove across at the posted speed limit.

    Driving across without an escort will lose the privilege for everyone! It took a lot of effort to get permission to cross at all.

    I understand that, but when you call and call and call, and no one answers, what to do?

    We'll be crossing for the first time on Monday.......I don't know if I wanna risk just driving across.....i'm about taking risks at times but I imagine it would be a pretty big fine? But I'm sure I'd think long and hard about it LOL
