The contract to design and build the fourth and final phase of the Kicking Horse Canyon Project near Golden has been finalized and formally awarded to Kicking Horse Canyon Constructors (KHCC).
The KHCC team, consisting of Aecon Group Inc., Parsons Inc. and Emil Anderson Construction, was named as the preferred proponent team on Sept. 18, 2020. The $440.6-million contract award completes the competitive procurement process that began in December 2019.
Phase 4 will bring the remaining 4.8 kilometres of narrow, winding two-lane highway up to a modern four-lane, 100 km/h standard, improving efficiency and safety for travellers. It is expected to be substantially complete in winter 2023-24.
The project will be delivered under the Province’s Community Benefits Agreement. The project has a budget of $601 million, with $386 million from the provincial government and $215 million from the federal government.
