WEST GLACIER, MONT. – The public is invited to a free presentation about Glacier National Park's Going-to-the-Sun Road Rehabilitation Project on Tuesday, June 25, 5:30-7 p.m. at the St. Mary Visitor Center on the east side of Glacier National Park.
Glacier National Park Landscape Architect Jack Gordon and Federal Highway Administration Resident Engineer Mike Baron will share images and information about the extensive rehabilitation project on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, including construction activity for this summer and fall.
The focus of this year's rehabilitation work will be on the east side of Logan Pass, from Siyeh Bend to Rising Sun, as well as some work on the west side between Avalanche Creek and Logan Creek.
The major rehabilitation project on the road is anticipated to be completed in 2017. As a national historic landmark, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is managed to retain its historic character and to allow opportunities for visitors to experience the park's magnificent scenery and unique character.
For more information about the program, please contact the park at 406-888-7800.
