Read the budget disclosure

A project that involves a significant realignment of more than four kilometeres of the Trans-Canada Highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon to improve traffic operations, safety and reduce rock fall and avalanche hazards.  

The ministry has completed preliminary engineering for Phase 4 and intends to issue a design-build Request for Proposals that would see construction begin in 2019

  • Upgrading more than four kilometeres through the most challenging section of the canyon
  • Four lane widening, alignment improvements and reduction of rock fall and avalanche hazards can be achieved using a combination of bridges, retaining walls, wide catchment ditches and other measures
  • Alternative alignment studies, preliminary design, environmental and geotechnical studies have been completed
