Kicking Horse Canyon Project Phase 4

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 began spring 2021 to complete the transformation.

Spring 2024 Update

​Construction to complete final details, including pavement, line painting, wildlife fencing and landscaping, resumes on April 2, 2024. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and posted at 50 km/h throughout the Phase 4 construction zone. Two-minute stoppages will be a regular daily occurrence, and daytime full closures of up to two hours are planned on three days in April and one day in May. For details, please consult the Highway Status Calendar and confirm with DriveBC.

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 of additional direct travel time, but there's lots of stunning scenery and experiences along the way so you may want to plan more time. 

To make the most of your road trip to Golden and beyond into BC visit and for ideas on places to visit and fun things to do on the journey.
