Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

The Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

For information on travel restrictions and trail closures related to the Reynolds Creek and Thompson Wildland Fires, please refer to the following websites:

Going-to-the-Sun Road Construction Notice - The Road is currently open to public travel. Road construction between Siyeh Bend and the foot of Saint Mary Lake is ongoing; expect up to 30 minute weekday traffic delays. Beginning October 5, the road will close to vehicular traffic between Logan Pass and the foot of St. Mary Lake (adjacent to the St. Mary Campground Entrance) for the remainder of the season to facilitate accelerated road rehabilitation. Logan Pass will only be accessible from the west side beginning October 5.

Fall hiker-biker access through the closure will be allowed when the contractor is not actively working on the road. At this time we do not anticipate evening or weekend work.

Backcountry trail users should be aware that the east-side road work precludes roadway access and specific trail segments may be closed.

Project Overview

As you are most likely aware, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is undergoing an extensive rehabilitation. This multi-year project is overseen by the Federal Highway Administration in partnership with the National Park Service at Glacier National Park.

After extensive public involvement in the early 2000s, the preferred alternative selected for the park's environmental impact statement directs 'Shared Use' of the Sun Road during the core summer season (mid June to mid September), weather permitting.

Weather permitting, before and after the core season of 'Shared Use' (mid June to Mid September), road work for the project will be accelerated and prevent through traffic across the entire Sun Road.

For the most up to date park road closures and travel information related to the Going-to-the-Sun Road project, call 1-406-888-7800 or visit the Glacier National Park Current Road Status website.
