Road Closures Affecting Deliveries

September 8, 2022

KICKING HORSE CANYON CONSTRUCTION

Please note that there will be road closures at Kicking Horse Pass, which affects our freight delivery in the following areas:

  • Surrey to Calgary
  • Calgary to Surrey
  • Vancouver Island to Calgary
  • Calgary to Vancouver Island
  • Calgary to Kamloops*
  • Kamloops* to Calgary
  • Calgary to Kelowna*
  • Kelowna* to Calgary

* includes all towns serviced or travelled through this terminal (ie: Calgary to Williams Lake and 100 Mile House must travel through Kamloops and will also be affected by the closures)

Upcoming Winter Closures

Van Kam relies on road access through Kicking Horse to provide our customers with safe & efficient delivery of their freight. Naturally, along with our customers, we too are frustrated with the time it is taking the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to complete this project; however, please know that we constantly remain vigilant to mitigate current delays, as we also plan for upcoming winter construction delays to occur from Sep 6 – Nov 30th.

What We’re Doing About It

Van Kam is continuously re-routing our trailers according to the scheduled shutdowns, but delays are imminent as we have to travel around the area via longer routes. Please expect up to 1 day for your freight’s arrival time. We WILL get the job done, just not at our regular standard transit times. As always, Van Kam Freightways thanks you for your patience and understanding.
