Trans-Canada Highway's Kicking Horse Canyon: A Project Update, and the Road Ahead

This paper starts by introducing the reader to the Kicking Horse Canyon, and puts in context the type and volume of traffic that uses the facility. The paper then presents a chronology of engineering activity that the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation (BCMoT) has embarked on over the last 15 years, followed by a description of the highway and the surrounding environment as it exists today and as it existed prior to starting recent construction in 2000. Finally, the recent and current construction works are described, including the contracting models adopted by BCMoT, and concludes with a description of the current engineering activity and BCMoT's plans for implementing this next round of improvements.
