The focus of the expansion is to four-lane the entire section of roadway, which includes 339 kilometres under the jurisdiction of the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, as well as 101 kilometres under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada. Construction is underway on a 2.5-kilometre stretch 20 kilometres west of Golden. One section of the Hoffman’s Bluff to Jade Mountain section will begin construction in 2019, with the remaining sections currently in the design phase.

Eleven of the sections have already been completed, with seven others currently under development.

In February of 2017, the federal government announced that it would provide $215 million to the Kicking Horse Canyon project that is part of the province’s upgrade of the highway.
