Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

The Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

Construction operations along the Going-to-the-Sun Road have been suspended due to the Reynolds Creek Wildland Fire.
For further information on the fire and current road closures, please refer to the following websites:

Construction efforts for the remainder of 2015 are focused on the east side of Logan Pass between Siyeh Bend and the St. Mary park boundary. Early summer, visitors can expect ongoing paving operations as they travel through this portion of the Road. A maximum of 30 minutes travel delay should be expected for construction operations.

The Road is fully open to visitor travel. While the Road is open to travel, travelers can expect ongoing construction operations on the east side of Logan Pass between Siyeh Bend and St. Mary. Most of the work entails paving operations and a travel delay of 1/2 hour can be expected while traveling this 15 mile segment of the Road. Travelers will need to follow flaggers and/or pilot car instructions.

Parking at many of the trailheads will be restricted. Hikers are highly encouraged to use the park's shuttle to access these points. The shuttle system begins for the summer season on July 1, 2015 and will run until Labor Day.

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.
