Parts of Sun Road to Close Sept. 14 for Work

By Beacon Staff

WEST GLACIER – After Sept. 14, parts of the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park will be closed for the winter and visitors won’t be able to get to Logan Pass from the east.

Park officials say the road closure will accommodate ongoing repair work along the scenic mountain highway. It includes paving two lanes on the west side between the West Tunnel and Crystal Point; and completing November 2006 storm repairs east of Logan Pass.

The west side of the Sun Road from Avalanche to Big Bend will close to vehicular traffic from Sept. 15 to Sept. 22, then reopen for the rest of the season until closed down by weather.

On the east side, Jackson Glacier Overlook to Logan Pass will be closed from Sept. 15 to all traffic for the remainder of the season.
