GTSR to open Friday afternoon ~ if it doesn't snow any more

WEST GLACIER, MONT. – All 50 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are anticipated to be open to vehicle travel by Friday afternoon, June 21, weather dependent. Weather forecasts call for rain showers, wind gusts up to 40 mph, and possible snow.

As of Thursday afternoon, snow was falling at the higher elevations and approximately one inch of slush was on the road. The temperature at Oberlin Bend, just west of Logan Pass, was 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Crews are working to remove mud and rock debris from the road and prepare for public access. Visitors are encouraged to drive with care.

Hopefully there won't be heavy rain and rock slides like last year.
