Plan Accordingly for Many Glacier Road Construction
Although the Many Glacier Road will be under construction this year and next, Glacier’s magnificent east side will still provide significant opportunities for visitors.
April 1 – May 17, 2020 & September 21 – December 16, 2020
May 18 – September 20, 2020
This project will provide much-needed rehabilitation to the Many Glacier Road, including culvert replacement, drainage repairs, and pavement resurfacing.
The Many Glacier Road will be closed to visitor traffic at the park boundary due to large-scale road construction projects from April 1 through May 17, 2020 and again from September 21 through December 16, 2020.
To accommodate visitors during the park’s peak season, the Many Glacier Road will be open May 18, 2020 through September 20, 2020. Large-scale road construction projects will continue during this time and visitors should expect travel delays up to 40 minutes each way from Babb to the Many Glacier Hotel.
Visitors traveling through construction zones between 10pm and 5am Monday through Friday may experience up to 3-hour delays.
Due to the need to reduce congestion during construction, the entire Many Glacier Campground will transfer to reservation only for the duration of the project. All Many Glacier campsites will be available by reservation only for $23 per night at Recreation.gov.
Backcountry campers are encouraged to choose from a wide array of alternative hiking routes that do not end in Many Glacier. Don’t forget to pick up a backcountry permit!
