Road reconstruction typically requires warmer weather. In this part of the country that means road construction overlaps with the primary visitor season of May through October. In the summer of 2022 there will be several road construction projects that may impact travel times within the Glacier National Park area.

U.S. Highway 2

Highway 2, along the southern boundary of the park is being worked on between Hungry Horse, MT and Stanton Creek until June 1. Expect traffic delays along this route. More information about the construction project can be found on Montana Department of Transportation's website.


U.S. Highway 89
The section of Highway 89 immediately east and south of St. Mary, MT will be under construction this summer. This is the continuation of a multi-year project that has been ongoing for the last few summers. Expect traffic delays between Hudson Bay Divide and Kiowa. More information about the construction project can be found on Montana Department of Transportation's website.

Going-to-the-Sun Road
The Lake McDonald Utilities Project will replace seven miles of sewer force main, electrical, and telephone lines from Apgar to the Lake McDonald Lodge along Going-to-the-Sun Road. It will also replace the lift station at the lodge to reduce the threat of sewage overflow.

A short construction zone in one lane of the Going-to-theSun Road will take place from now until June 1, 2022. This construction zone will have flaggers on either end to temporarily stop traffic. This zone will be moving through the day and from day-to-day until major construction begins.

Major construction will begin on June 1, 2022 at 10 pm. Spring and summer work will be done at night from 10 pm to 6 am, with a nighttime closure in place along Going-to-the-Sun Road from the south end of the lake near Apgar Campground to Sprague Creek Campground. Vehicles will have one opportunity at midnight to be piloted through. There will be a full closure beginning October 1, 2022.

Camas to North Fork & Northeast Bridges
A bridge rehabilitation project will restore 13 bridges around the park over the next two years. Work will start on the Camas Road bridge over the North Fork of the Flathead on July 18, 2022 and will incorporate single lane closures September 6, 2022 through November 13, 2022. Beginning July 18, 2022 Fish Creek, Dutch Creek, and Anaconda Creek Bridges on the Inside North Fork Road, which is closed to vehicles, will have single lane closures for hiker/biker and will move to full closures beginning September 6, 2022 through the Fall. The Lee Creek Bridge on Chief Mountain Highway near the Northeast Canadian border will have single lane closures beginning September 6, 2022 through November 13, 2022.

Logan Pass and St. Mary Visitor Centers
In June crews will begin work to replace doors, windows, hand railings, and deteriorated roof beams at the Logan Pass Visitor Center. This will project will have minimal impact to visitors. The St. Mary Visitor center project will replace rotted columns on the exterior of the visitor center. There will be temporary closures around both visitor centers to visitors and employees.

Big Bend
In June the most unique vault toilet in Glacier with a living roof will be completed. The project includes a two-hole vault toilet set back into the hill on the north side of the road. The construction zone on the north side of Big Bend is closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic until the project is complete. There will be minimal impacts to employees and visitors.

Rising Sun
The Rising Sun Utilities Project will replace sewer and water lines in the concessions lodging area. The contractor will stop work from June 8, 2022 to September 11, 2022 for the visitor season. During the Spring closure, there will be no access into Rising sun. From September 11, 2022 through the end of the season, the entrance into the concessions area will be blocked off to visitors as well as access to the Otokomi Lake Trail.

How does the free shuttle work?
