Paving will begin the week of August 12 on the Going-to-the-Sun Road between Avalanche Creek and Logan Creek, on the west side of the park. Visitors can expect delays of 20 minutes in this area during this time, which is anticipated to take approximately one week, weather dependent. A pilot vehicle will be used to provide traffic control.
Visitors hiking the Trail of the Cedars or hiking the Avalanche Trail to Avalanche Lake may encounter a busy and congested area for parking.
Sun Point, located on the east side, is closed to the public and being utilized as a staging area for rehabilitation activities. The Sun Point picnic area and restroom facilities are not available, and the park shuttle does not stop at this location. It is anticipated that Sun Point will remain closed to the public for the next few years, or through rehabilitation work.

The visitor shuttle system traveling the Going-to-the-Sun Road will operate through Labor Day. Transit centers are located near Apgar on the west-side of the park and the St. Mary Visitor Center on the east-side.
