Glacier's Going to the Sun Road still being plowed

Posted: Updated:
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Mont. -

Crews are making progress plowing the famous Going to the Sun Road in northern Montana’s Glacier National Park.

Park officials aren't speculating when the road might open this year but say only a few more weeks of work remain. 

Plows got to work on the big job April 1st.

The earliest the mountain highway has opened is May 16 and the latest July 13. 

Last year, the road opened June 16.

The Flathead Beacon reports the final push involves clearing Logan Pass and the so-called “big drift”, where as much as 80 feet of snow piles up.
