GREAT FALLS — The famed Going To The Sun Road between Avalanche Creek and Logan Pass in Glacier National will be closed from September 16 until September 29 due to a pavement preservation project.
Logan Pass will remain accessible from the east side of Glacier National Park via the Saint Mary's entrance. Avalanche Lake Trail also will remain accessible, along with other trailheads west of Avalanche Creek.
Visitors also should be aware that all water at the Logan Pass Visitor Center is now off for the winter season.
Crews may work seven days a week depending on weather, and may work very late in the day. However, there may be days when the pavement treatment is curing, and while it will not be suitable for vehicle travel, bicycle travel may be possible.
The park expects to open the road again on September 30, weather permitting.
Typically, the alpine section of the Going To The Sun Road closes between Avalanche Creek and Jackson Glacier Overlook in mid-October so that crews can winterize the road before significant snow falls and ice coats guardrails and road surfaces.
However, early fall storms frequently close the alpine section of the road for periods of time in late September and early October.
