MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Construction is underway in Glacier National Park now that the busy tourist season has winded down.

The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/2eQtYDG ) that the park’s current projects include a new bridge being built over Avalanche Creek and the rehabilitation of the St. Mary Entrance Station on the park’s east side.

The final phase of rehabilitation for the park’s 50-mile Going-to-the-Sun Road is scheduled to start next spring. The project will focus on repairing the first 14 miles at the West Entrance, which welcomes the most people to the park each year.

The Many Glacier Hotel is also set to get some improvements next spring. Park spokeswoman Lauren Alley says a new double-helix staircase will be installed in the 101-year-old hotel to replace an original staircase that was removed decades ago.
