Hi all, P3D has a serious scenery issue with the display of The Mackinac Bridge between the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan. FSX displayed quite nicely.

P3D shows the roadway below the bridge and cars on the roadway! The roadway is depicted on the bridge itself sort of... It definitely needs attention. The actual bridge structure is fine, the bridge towers, piers, suspension suspenders are portrayed fairly well.

How about an update patch? New scenery file? Something to remedy is issue. Yes, I am from Michigan and my home airport in Detroit Wayne County Metro (KDTW).

I do not have traffic on the bridge in FSX or P3D v2.3.

"P3D shows the roadway below the bridge and cars on the roadway! "

I do not see this.

Also, in FSX the northbound (and southbound) traffic does a "U" turn before the bridge and goes in opposite direction!

In P3D traffic vanishes before the bridge .. I did not check for it doing a "U" turn or not.

I have no idea if traffic is supposed to cross the bridge.

Did you happen to do a screenshot ... or video.
Best Regards,
