Kicking Horse Canyon Construction:
The final phase of the of the Kicking Horse Canyon project involves upgrading 4.8 kilometres of the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy #1) through the most challenging section of the canyon. It will provide a safer and more efficient journey for all travellers.
At all times, the scenic combination of Highways 93 and 95 will provide a safe and easy alternative route to the Golden area. Plan for slightly more than an hour additional direct travel time, but there's lots of stunning scenery and experiences along the way so you may want to plan more time.

During road closures, plan your trip to include the many experiences through the Golden Triangle along Highways 93 and 95. Before you travel please check road conditions.
