Highway 93S in Kootenay National Park. Work will occur within two separate construction zones. The first zone is located between the Continental Divide day use area and Marble Canyon day use area, and the second zone is located between the Hector Gorge viewpoint and McLeod Meadows.
Why: Paving and safety improvements
When: Starting as early as mid-July and continuing to the end of October, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. No work on Sundays or long weekends.
What: Expect speed reduction zones, occasional single lane alternating traffic and delays of up to 30 minutes throughout project duration.
Please note: Rock blasting at a location approximately 1 km north of the Marble Canyon Campground will be required as part of this project. At this location, motorists should anticipate delays of up to 90 minutes between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, for approximately a two-week period tentatively scheduled to occur in mid-late August. These pre-scheduled 1 hour delays will be posted on Drive BC a few days in advance. In addition, motorists can expect occasional delays of between 30 and 45 minutes for rock blasting, from Monday through Saturday. No work on Sundays or long weekends.
