KALISPELL (AP) — Contractors are wrapping up their work for the season on reconstructing the dormitory building and the roof of the Sperry Chalet in Glacier National Park.
The Flathead Beach reports that if everything goes according to plan, the chalet will be completed in 2019 and once again welcoming guests soon after.
In August, 2017, a wildfire gutted the century-old chalet.
Soon after the fire, Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke announced that he wanted the historic wilderness chalet to be rebuilt.
The National Park Service streamlined the permitting process for rebuilding the chalet and in June announced that it would spend $12 million reconstructing Sperry over the next two years and work began in earnest over the summer.
