Update June 2nd, 2021:

 

TRAVEL TO GOLDEN WILL BE UNAFFECTED DURING THE SUMMER DAYTIME HOURS.

 

An informative calendar of all up to date road closures and construction delays can be found at www.kickinghorsecanyon.ca/calendar

The Trans-Canada Highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon is both spectacular and challenging. Since 2003, much of the 26-kilometre stretch between Yoho National Park and Golden has been improved to a modern 4-lane standard. Only 5 kilometres of winding 1950's-era 2-lane highway remain and work is expected to begin in late 2020 to complete the transformation.

 

To minimize construction traffic impacts in peak periods, night work will be emphasized as much as possible. In winter 2020/21, there may be traffic stoppages of up to 2 hours during the day and evening and closures of up to 9 hours overnight (10 pm to 7 am).   There will be no daytime interruptions during the summer.

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 travel time.
