Authentic Mackinac Bridge Grate with Tile


These bridge grates come directly from the Mackinac Bridge Authority, and we’ve attached a hand-crafted tile to each one for you to enjoy a little piece of history.


The Mackinac Bridge, among the 5 longest suspension bridges in the world, has been a staple of our state since its opening in 1957, and we want to share a piece of it with you!

Every year, the bridge is inspected for quality and 6-20 bridge grates are replaced. We’re lucky enough to get our hands on those discarded pieces and turn them into art. Attached to every authentic bridge grate is a hand-crafted tile of the Mackinac Bridge.

Please keep in mind every grate is slightly different in shape and size, so choose the color of your tile and your piece of the bridge will be totally unique for you.
