Park officials have reopened the west entrance to Glacier National Park after closing it on Thursday afternoon after an automobile crash on Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Tow trucks are on scene at the Triple Arches, removing the vehicles from the crash. Park officials said motorists can expect congestion while traffic patterns return to normal.

The West Entrance Station began turning away vehicles before 1 p.m.; all cars traveling on the east side of the road were being turned around at Logan Pass. The closures are due to gridlock on the road.

The west entrance is one of the most popular gateways to Glacier Park, with 75,984 using it in July of 2017, and 131,468 in August 2017.
