GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Glacier National Park officials say they’re hoping to open Going-to-the-Sun Road on Friday but much depends on the weather.

Spokeswoman Denise Germann tells the Great Falls Tribune that crews are working to open the road despite spring storms that brought 16 new inches of snow since Memorial Day.

She says snow slides have also slowed progress, with crews even having to plow their way back through avalanches that came in behind them.

Glacier-area business owners say they’re hoping the road opens Friday and there isn’t a repeat of last year when weather didn’t allow the road to open until July 13.
