SkyBridge Michigan, a 1,200-foot long suspension bridge being built at Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, reached a major milestone in its construction last week with the rising of its timber towers.
The towers each measure more than 50-feet high and nearly 70-feet long anchoring both ends of the bridge. Their design is a nod to the logging heritage of Northern Michigan, with lumber sourced from neighboring Matelski Lumber.
Positioned at the crest between McLouth and Disciple’s Ridge, SkyBridge Michigan is set to become the world’s longest timber-towered suspension bridge, and will offer resort guests and visitors alike an exhilarating experience. The walking surface will hang suspended 118-feet from the ground level and showcase panoramic views of the surrounding Boyne Valley. The bridge is expected to open in September and will be open year-round.
