Proposal to put the Mackinac Bridge on a postage stamp didn't stick

March 1st, 2005

A proposal to put the Mackinac Bridge on a postage stamp didn't stick, but supporters aren't ready to cancel the idea.

A committee was formed in Mackinaw City to apply for a commemorative stamp honoring the bridge's 50th anniversary in 2007.

A US Postal Service manager told the committee the subject matter is too local.

The group will now focus on getting a stamp in 2008.
