The Government of B.C. has embarked on a 10-year project to expand the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) between the city of Kamloops and the Alberta border. Highway 1 includes 339 km under the jurisdiction of the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, as well as 101 km under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada. There are seven sections of the work that are scheduled for completed over the next 3-5 years: Chase four-laning at a cost of $220M; Ford Road to Tappen Valley overhead, at a cost of $243 million; Salmon Arm west, at a cost of $155 million; Bruhn Bridge, at a cost of $224.5 million; Illecillewaet, at a cost of $85.2 million; Quartz Bridge and four-laning, at a cost of $123.7 million; and Kicking Horse Canyon Phase 4, at a cost of $601 million, to be completed in winter 2023-24. Since the launch of construction in early 2021, the major activity on the Kicking Horse Canyon Project consisted of clearing, excavating, drilling, piling and pier construction to establish the underpinnings of the many structures that will be used in straightening and widening the highway to a modern four-lane standard. By the end 2021, the first bridge girders will have been put in place, and there was significant progress on cuts and retaining walls.
