WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Glacier National Park Officials have temporarily closed the main Park Headquarters Building, due to a possible asbestos issue related to the installation of a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

At this time, we do not have confirmation that asbestos is present but we are acting on the possibility that some of the building materials may contain asbestos. Testing is underway and the building will remain closed to entry until it is shown that it is safe to return.

Employees are being temporarily relocated to other offices in the Park Headquarters area and critical functions like mail service and phones are working.

Visitors to the park can still obtain information at the Apgar Visitor Center, near the foot of Lake McDonald. Until Park Headquarters reopens, the visitor center will expand its hours from weekends only, to seven day-a-week coverage. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. The visitor center will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
