If you're looking to escape to B.C. over the long weekend there's some good news.

Highway 1 by Kicking Horse Canyon has been fully opened to traffic but just for the weekend.

Construction has taken a timeout until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6th.

Although there might be occasional stoppages to move equipment there won't be the previous stoppages which could last up to 30 minutes or more at times.

It's the final link of Highway 1 between Yoho National Park and Golden, B.C
