Twelve sections of the original steel grating from the Mackinac Bridge deck are being auctioned off.

Each steel section is being auctioned off separately. Bids on each 30-inch by 60-inch piece began at $100, but at the time this article is publishing, bids are all above $400.

The sections run about five inches deep and weigh a whopping 200 pounds. That’s a lot of steel!

Expect “corrosion and section loss appropriate to steel that is 60 years old,” according to the auction description.
