It consists of 31 kilometres of six- and eight-lane divided highway, 14 interchanges, 47 bridges, one road flyover, one railway crossing (flyover), one culvert set, one tunnel, as well as three river crossings over the Elbow River and Fish Creek.

*Note: With Phase 4 construction not beginning until fall 2020, driving conditions on the Trans-Canada Highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon during spring and summer 2020 will be as normal, subject only to the factors that typically exist during this period such as routine or emergency maintenance and natural events. Visit https://www.drivebc.ca/ for more information on travelling in British Columbia.
The Kicking Horse Canyon, located just east of Golden, BC, is one of the most rugged and scenic sections to be found on the Trans-Canada Highway. As a tourist and commercial transportation corridor, the highway carries more than 10,000 vehicles daily during the summer. While the mix varies by season, up to 30% of the traffic consists of commercial vehicles moving millions of dollars in goods to serve interprovincial and international trade. Three phases of work have transformed 21 kilometres of narrow, winding two-lane highway into a modern four-lane, 100 km/h standard. Construction of the fourth and final phase to complete the remaining – and most difficult – 4.8 kilometres is expected to begin in fall 2020.

There are currently no advisories at this time.
Parking and Visitation Advisory
Parking lots at Barrier Dam and Grassi Lakes Day Use Area will be managed by traffic control staff to ensure emergency vehicles have access. Please do not park on the highway or roadway shoulders when parking lots become full. If the designated parking lots are full, plan to visit another area.
Grotto Mountain Day and Yamnuksa Day Use Area will be controlled as well. Please do not park outside of designated parking lots in these areas or on the highway or roadway shoulders; this creates a dangerous situation and impedes access by emergency vehicles.
Additional Parks outside of the Kananaskis area may also have restrictions in place. Be prepared to adjust your plans depending on availability.
