If you're headed west to BC you might be faced with some major delays along highway 1 over the next while. 

The Trans-Canada Highway in B.C., near the Alberta border, will close for a month-long construction shutdown. 

Starting on Monday, you can expect disruptions and, at times, full highway closures.

As part of the highway upgrades, motorists will be detoured to Highways 93 south and 95, impacting communities including Golden and Radium Hot Springs.

Nearly 5 km of the highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon will be upgraded to modern standards. 

The first extended closure will begin April 12 and will last until May 14. 

Then just three days later on May 17, there will be 24-hour closures on weekdays which will start and last until May 31.
