Highway 1 - Kamloops to Alberta - Four Laning

Upgrading the highway to a modern, 100 km/h, four-lane standard, will allow traffic to move more safely and efficiently. Communities will be better connected, and businesses will be better able to move their products throughout the province, through our ports and beyond our borders. 

The Province has committed $1.044 billion to upgrading Highway 1 between Kamloops and the Alberta border over the next three years under Budget 2020.
