It was announced yesterday that the upper stretch of Going-to-the-Sun Road has officially been closed for the season.
From the Loop on the west side and Jackson Glacier Overlook on the east side of Glacier National Park, the road is now closed as a result of icy road conditions. This closure is earlier than the planned Nov. 1st. date.
The lower portions of the road, 23 miles from the W. Glacier entrance to the Loop on the west side and 13 miles from St. Mary to Jackson Glacier Overlook on the E. remain open to motorists.
