Glacier NP: Going to The Sun

Time for my annual update. For 2011 thr road will open across the park no earlier than June 17, 2011, and I doubt it will happen then. Construction is mostly on the lower sections of road, and the rebuild of the alpine stretch is nearly complete.

It is snowing in the alpine today, and was yesterday. Snowpack in the park is 200-300% of normal, so it will likely be a late opening this year. The Logan Pass Visitor Center roof is visible, but that is about all that is sticking out of the snow!

Flooding is also an issue now, and crews are active keeping culverts clear.....

I'll try to provide more info as opening gets closer!

Re: Glacier NP: Going to The Sun

Still working hard to get it open over Logan Pass! Crews are battling 20-25 feet of snow in the last few miles approaching Logan Pass, and then still have to get through the Big Drift which averages 45-60' and is likely far deeper this year...... No estimate of when through traffic will happen yet, but I'll keep you posted.

While reconstruction continues, most of it will be paved this year with small exceptions.
