While tens of thousands of people walk across the Mackinac Bridge on Monday, hundreds will celebrate a local landmark. The annual “Tridge Walk” in Midland is set to start at 9 am. In Chip This year though because of renovations to the Tridge the event will be a little different. Dexter Brigham is with the Midland Noon Rotary Club and says it will be more about the community.

Brigham says, “It’s a chance for us to kind of learn more about our city and to raise a little bit of money for the Rotary Club. We support all kinds of other community initiatives. Normally you do a Tridge Walk – we get to be lazy this year… instead of doing all the actual exercise, we’re just going to have coffee and donuts.”

The Tridge Walk was started in 1992 as a way to pay tribute to the bridge crossing the confluence of the Titabawassee and the Chippewa Rivers. Brigham says this year rather than walk across the Tridge the community will hear from speakers giving project updates not only on the Tridge renovation, but to the downtown area including the streetscape project – “Dig In Midland.” He says the annual event is used as a fundraiser to help several area charities. Over the last 25 years the event has grown to include dulcimer music and food.
