The Mackinac Bridge has been reopened to traffic as of late Wednesday afternoon. 

Falling ice forced its closure earlier in the day, according to a tweet from the Mackinac Bridge Authority. 

Traffic wasn't allowed on the bridge until conditions improved, according to the authority website. 

Temperatures are in the low 30s with winds between 5 and 10 mph.
