As you are most likely aware, the Going-to-the-Sun Road (Sun Road) is undergoing an extensive rehabilitation. This multi-year project is overseen by the Federal Highway Administration in partnership with the National Park Service at Glacier National Park.

After extensive public involvement in the early 2000s, the preferred alternative selected for the park's environmental impact statement directs 'Shared Use' of the Sun Road during the core summer season (mid-June to mid-September), weather permitting.

Weather permitting, before and after the core season of 'Shared Use' (mid-June to mid-September), road work for the project will be accelerated and prevent through traffic across the entire Sun Road.

Due to changing weather conditions this time of year, call the Glacier National Park information center at 1-406-888-7800 or visit the Glacier National Park Current Road Status website
