All vehicles can now travel on the Trans-Canada #1 from Vancouver to Hope. But routes north are limited to local travel (the #1 as far as Jackass Mountain, and the Coquihalla #5). The only route east from Hope is the Crowsnest Route #3 toward Osoyoos.
The section between Hope and Princeton was damaged by mudslide/rockslide during the flooding in November 2021. It was cleaned up and rebuilding is continuing at this time.
As of Dec 21, Highway 3 has opened up to general travel. Truckers should take the Coquihalla #5 to/from Kamloops
We have itineraries for the Crowsnest Route #3 from Hope to Osoyoos, from Osoyoos to Castlegar, from Castlegar to Cranbrook, from Cranbrook to Lethbridge, and from Lethbridge to Medicine Hat. You can see more overviews of the Crowsnest Route in British Columbia and the Crowsnest Route in Alberta
The route has one lane in each direction (and an occasional passing lanes), and moves at the speed of the slowest vehicle on the road. So please be patient.
Continue east past the Crowsnest Pass communities and when you pass the giant white wind turbine, turn left onto Highway 22, heading north. You can cut over to Highway #3 into Calgary at either Highway 533 (connects to #3 just north of Nanton) or Highway #540 (turn east at Bar U Ranch National historic Site, and connect to #3 at a giant radio antenna just South of High River. Be cautious on this segment if there are wind warnings and your truck has an empty load! In that case head further east on #3 to Fort MacLeod and continue north on Highway #2
