Construction continues east of Golden to realign and widen a 4.8 kilometre section of the Trans-Canada Highway.

According to a statement, the project will improve highway safety by adding four lanes with a median barrier and wider road shoulders.

Construction is expected to be completed in winter 2023.

The Trans-Canada Highway is closed between Golden and Castle Junction until Nov. 30 with detours available through highways 93 and 95.
