The National Park Service has awarded a $4.7 million contract to complete the reconstruction of the Sperry Chalet in Glacier National Park by this fall.

Park service officials said Tuesday that the final phase will include masonry repairs, a permanent roof and interior finishes. They say the century-old dormitory should be ready for overnight stays again next year.

A wildfire badly damaged the historic wilderness chalet in August 2017. It’s being rebuilt on the original site, using the stone walls that were left standing.

The contractor, Dick Anderson Construction, also won the $4 million contract for the first phase of reconstruction completed last year.
