The Lower McDonald Creek Bridge, near Apgar Village on the west side of Glacier National Park, will be closed for approximately 12 hours beginning 6 p.m. Wednesday. It is anticipated that the bridge will open to traffic by 6 a.m. Thursday.

Rehabilitation of the bridge began in mid-September and will continue through the first week of November. This bridge provides access from West Glacier to the Camas Road, Fish Creek and Grist Road areas.

Rehabilitation work on the bridge includes bridge repair, paving, embankment improvement and formalization of social trails near the bridge. Timberline Contracting Inc., a Montana-based company, is leading the rehabilitation efforts.

For more information, call park headquarters at (406) 888-7800.
