Lower McDonald Creek Bridge Rehabilitation Begins

Rehabilitation of the Lower McDonald Creek Bridge near Apgar Village on the west side of Glacier National Park began this week with work continuing through the first week of November. This bridge provides access to the Camas Road.

One-lane closures on the bridge are anticipated to occur 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the first week of October. At that time, one-lane closures will occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Visitors can expect short delays during bridge rehabilitation work. Rehabilitation work on the Lower McDonald Creek Bridge is anticipated to be completed by the first week of November.

The scope of work to be completed includes bridge repair, paving, embankment improvement, and formalization of social trails near the bridge. Timberline Contracting, Inc., a Montana-based company, will lead all rehabilitation efforts for the Lower McDonald Creek Bridge.
