Glacier National Park prepares for winter road closures

September 28, 2018

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Glacier National Park is preparing for the winter closure next month of its main thoroughfare.

The Daily Inter Lake reports road crews have begun installing snow poles in the mountaintop section of Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is set to close on Oct. 15.

The park closes the road in sections. A construction project this year will briefly close the road at the foot of Lake McDonald to Jackson Glacier Overlook from Oct. 15-19.

Depending on weather conditions, the section between Lake McDonald Lodge and near the St. Mary Campground turnoff typically closes in mid-December.

Most concessionaire services in the park have ended for the season, but a few bus tours will continue through mid-October.
