The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is advising the public that final work on Phase 4 of the Kicking Horse Canyon Project will begin on Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

The MOTI said drivers are advised to expect lane closures and minor delays throughout the spring.

Highway 1 will be reduced to lane one in each direction through Kicking Horse Canyon for the duration of the remaining project work. This will allow crews to safely complete paving, line painting, wildlife fencing and landscaping.

Drivers may encounter two-minute stoppages until project completion later in the spring. Drivers are asked to obey signs and watch for traffic-control personnel.

Full closures of up to two hours are scheduled for April 3, April 15, April 29 and May 13, as well as early mornings on June 10, June 11, June 24 and June 25.

Drivers are also reminded that the speed limit on this section of the Trans-Canada Highway is reduced to 50 km/h until the work is completed. When the new four-lane divided highway is completed it will have a speed limit of 100 km/h.

The closures are subject to change.
