Share this article

A rehabilitation project for 13 bridges throughout the Glacier National Park (Montana) is starting up.

According to a report, the project will take place in the next two years and will be funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law [nps.gov] through the Federal Lands Transportation Program.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law increases funding for the NPS under the Federal Lands Transportation Program by 22% to over $1.73 billion over five years, and these funds will be invested in repairing and upgrading multiuse-trails, transit systems, roads, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure.

As per a release, improvements to the bridges will include deck and approach repairs as well as timber pile replacement and repairs, timber curb replacement, painting, concrete repair, stone masonry repairs, erosion control measures, and more.

Construction begins on two Inside North Fork Road bridges today, July 18. The Inside North Fork Road is managed for a rustic experience and is currently open to vehicles in certain sections and allows access to pedestrians, bicycles, and emergency vehicles in other sections.

Visitors will have pedestrian and bicycle access to Dutch Creek, Anaconda Creek, and Camas Creek.

The Fish Creek Bridge will have limited delays in traffic until it’s fully closed to motorized, pedestrian, and bicycle access on September 6, 2022, after Fish Creek Campground closes for the year.

The Appistoki Creek Bridge will have limited delays in traffic until it is fully closed to motorized, pedestrian, and bicycle access on September 26, 2022.

The North Fork Bridge, located at the north end of Camas Road, and the Lee Creek Bridge, located on Chief Mountain Highway, are also part of the rehabilitation program.

The work is scheduled to begin between 2022 and 2023. The construction of all bridges will be completed no later than November 14, 2022.
