Park officials in Montana have unveiled a temporary ticket entry system for the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor this summer in an effort to manage congestion and avoid potential closures because of the coronavirus pandemic and road construction.

The tickets are scheduled to be made available on April 29. Tribal members and people who own property within the park's boundaries are exempt from buying tickets.
