GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Mont. (AP) - A two-lane road mostly inside Glacier National Park has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

National Park Service officials said Monday the Camas Creek Cutoff Road which intersects with Going-to-the-Sun Road has been listed as a place of statewide historic significance. The register is the official list of places worthy of preservation within the United States.

The nearly 12-mile road leads from Going-to-the-Sun Road to the North Fork Road just outside the national park within the Flathead National Forest.

Park officials say the road with two bridges is a well-preserved example of mid-twentieth century roadway engineering and construction within a national park.

Camas Road was constructed between 1960 and 1967 and cost approximately $2.5 million.
