Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

The Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project

As you are most likely aware, the Going-to-the-Sun Road (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.

During this core visitation season, daytime traffic delays on the Sun Road will be no more than a total of 30 minutes. (Summertime nighttime work may require longer delays).

Weather permitting, before and after the core season of 'Shared Use', road work will be accelerated and prevent through traffic across the entire Sun Road.

For the most up to date park road closures and travel information, call 1-406-888-7800 or visit the Glacier National Park Current Road Status website at http://home.nps.gov/applications/glac/roadstatus/roadstatus.cfm.
