WEST GLACIER, Mt. – Glacier National Park is beginning its construction project to rehabilitate 13 of its bridges throughout the park, meaning delays and closures for park visitors. Since the glacier is at its peak time for visitors, they will be rolling it all out one by one.
This means that repairs, timber pile replacement, timber curb replacement, painting, concrete repairs, stone masonry repairs, erosion control measures and much more will begin l ‘next year.
First, the bridges on the North Fork Road. The Fish Creek Bridge and Appistoki Creek Bridge will have limited delays for all traffic until they close completely in September, so keep in mind where and how you can access some of these hotspots.
“There’s a swing-out gate right there at the Rocky Point trailhead and you can still access the trailhead, so that’s not the issue. But to travel further to travel anywhere in the “inside North Fork Road. It starts like the road it starts after you enter Fish Creek Campground, then instead of turning right, you turn left inside North Fork Road,” Gina said. Kerzman, GNP public information officer.
The rehabilitation project will continue through 2023. You are strongly encouraged to allow time for delays and, where possible, avoid morning rush hours of 8-11am.
