Timed tickets to handle traffic on Glacier Park’s Sun Road
HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Montana Glacier National Park will once again implement a timed entry system next summer – from Memorial Day weekend to after Labor Day weekend – to manage traffic on the Going-to-the-Sun Scenic Drive, park officials said Monday.
The park first used a ticketed entry system this year to distribute traffic across the popular Alpine Highway, when more than 3 million people have visited. Going-to-the-Sun Road takes visitors on Logan Pass on the Continental Divide, at an elevation of 6,646 feet (2,026 meters).
