MACKINAW CITY, Mich. — Snow and winds at the Mackinac Bridge are prompting officials to warn motorists to use caution when traveling across the span.

The notice about blowing snow and limited visibility was posted Tuesday on the website for the five-mile bridge connecting Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas.

TV stations WWTV-WWUP reports southbound lanes on the bridge were shut down for part of Tuesday morning because of a two-vehicle crash.

Motorists are instructed to reduce their speed to a maximum of 20 miles per hour, turn on low-beam headlights and drive cautiously.
