Something is broken. Until recently, the Yellowhead Highway had its own unique highway number signs, but they have now mostly been replaced with standard maple-leaf Trans-Canada Highway signs, with number-less Yellowhead shields posted adjacent to them.
Then, after running concurrently with the main Trans-Canada Highway route Highway 17 it splits off to the north, running through a vast and sparsely-populated area of northern Ontario. This highway sees very little long distance traffic compared to the main route, and is mainly used for local traffic, the area also being not well known as a tourist destination.
A much shorter 60 km section of Highway 66 connects another northern Trans-Canada Highway route to Quebec's Highwaywhich itself continues the TCH route to Montreal after connecting with Autoroute Both of these highways are exclusively two-lane undivided routes. The southern Ontario Trans-Canada Highway route is even more abstract than the northern ones. It uses four different highway numbers, and is largely non-functional as a major long distance corridor due to its roundabout route, complete avoidance of the Toronto area, and frequent passing through small towns.
It passes through several major communities, including Orillia and Peterborough. Because it passes closer to major population centres, this section of the TCH sees higher traffic volumes. It is made up of various fragments of freeways, expressways and two-lane routes. This route connects to Prince Edward Island across the 13 km-long Confederation Bridgecrosses the central part of Prince Edward Island, including through the provincial capital of Charlottetownbefore crossing back to the mainland on a ferry.
This leg of the Trans-Canada Highway sees moderately high traffic volumes and is a important tourist route for those wishing to visit Prince Edward Island. The Confederation Bridge is often viewed as an attraction in itself. Although the highway is mostly a two-lane route, its sections in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are built as super-two expressways.
Two short bypasses are also considered part of the Trans-Canada Highway system. These includes the kilometre-long 26 mi Perimeter Highway bypass around Winnipeg, which provides a expressway standard alternative to the crowded Highway 1 in the city centre; and the kilometre-long 21 mi two-lane Kenora Bypass Highway 17A which is a two-lane route that bypasses the entire town to the north.
Early on, much of the route of the Trans-Canada Highway was first explored in order to construct the Canadian Pacific Railway in the late s, a route which much of the mainline TCH route later ended up following. The Trans-Canada Highway was not the first road across Canada. Many of the earlier highways in British Columbia were largely gravel, and had many frequent inland ferry crossings at wide rivers and lakes.
In Alberta. Sections of road across the Prairies have also existed since the s. A gravel road connection across northern Ontario Highway 17 was constructed starting in While this section was largely open by the late s, it was not fully completed until in large part due to World War II interrupting construction. However, despite the gap, vehicles could still cross the county by getting ferried around the relatively short section of incomplete highway by either rail or water.
The system was approved by the Trans-Canada Highway Act of with construction commencing in This section of highway bypassed the original Big Bend Highway, the last remaining section of gravel highway on the route. Upon its original completion, the Trans-Canada Highway was the longest uninterrupted highway in the world. When the Trans-Canada Highway first opened, it was almost exclusively a two-lane route for its whole length across the country. While at the time it was considered a major improvement to the gravel roads and ferries it replaced, it was soon found insufficient to handle the growing traffic volumes.
In response, several provinces began to construct realignments, freeway upgrades and twin sections of highway in order to improve traffic flow and safety. The four-lane Upper Levels Freeway was relatively-crudely constructed, with narrow lanes, low overpasses and no proper merge ramps. It remains in this state in the present day. Between andHighway 1 was rerouted onto a new four-lane freeway bypass between Vancouver and Chilliwack.
This section of highway was originally part of British Columbia's own "" series of highwaysuntil the designation was replaced by Highway 1. The opening of the Cassiar Tunnel in bypassed the last sets of signal lights in Vancouver rendering the whole alignment of the Trans-Canada Highway through the Lower Mainland a freeway. All bypassed sections of the highway were absorbed into various urban and rural road networks.
The older freeways in the Lower Mainland were largely built as a parkway design, with wide forested medians and low overpasses a road configuration that was common across North America at the time.
The opening of the Coquihalla Highway in left much of the Trans-Canada Highway through the Fraser Canyon functionally obsolete, with the freeway bypass shortening the drive between Hope and Kamloops by 90 minutes. However, the route was retained as part of the Trans-Canada Highway system, despite being considered nothing more than a scenic route in the present. The opening of the Coquihalla was also an economic disaster for many of the towns along the Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway, since LP) of the travel and tourism business along the route quickly dried up when most of the traffic took the new highway.
The towns continue to be largely deprived of wealth, and some are close to being abandoned. On the other hand. Merrittlocated midway up the new Coquihalla highway, ended up booming, and continues to grow as a tourism and travel centre into the present.
Plans for a freeway to bypass or eliminate traffic congestion and road hazards along the heavily travelled route from Victoria to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island were cancelled during the recession that followed the stock market crash. In Alberta, between andthe Trans-Canada Highway was completely rerouted from its former two-lane alignment along the Bow River to a new, more direct, four-lane freeway between Banff and Calgary, resulting in the bypassing of several towns, such as Canmore.
Prior to this upgrade, one of the first traffic circles in Canada existed on Highway 1 at the "gateway" junction for Banff from at least as early as the s. In the rest of Banff National Park, much of the predecessor Highway 1 parkway was bypassed by a new two-lane route in the s.
Between and the highway was twinned from Calgary to the Saskatchewan Border. In plans were made for a six-to-eight-lane freeway to carry the Trans-Canada Highway though the heart of North Calgary, but the plan was soon dropped due to citizen outcry. Between Ottawa and the Ontario-Quebec border, the Trans-Canada Highway designation was taken from the two-lane Highway 17 and applied to the existing Highway freeway in — The Regional Municipality then designated the Tryin To Get The Feeling Again - Gene Pitney - Trans-Canada Highway (Vinyl as Regional Road Despite the protests of the region that the route served a provincial purpose, a second round of transfers saw Highway 17 within Ottawa downloaded entirely on January 1,adding an additional Starting in the s, Quebec began to build its Autoroute network.
Many sections of Trans-Canada Highway were upgraded to freeway standards during that era of highway construction. Work to make the route a full freeway began in the late s and was completed in Replacing the ferry that previously serviced that route, it was hailed as a major accomplishment. In andTransport Canada considered funding an infrastructure project to have the full Trans-Canada system converted to limited-access divided highways.
Although construction funding was made available to some provinces for portions of the system, the federal government ultimately decided not to pursue a comprehensive limited-access highway conversion.
Opposition to funding the limited-access upgrade was due to low traffic levels on parts of the Trans-Canada Highway. A major piece of this project was completed on August 30, with the new Park Bridge and Ten Mile Hill sections opening up 16 km of new four-lane highway. Other smaller four-lane upgrade projects on the Trans-Canada Highway in the interior of British Columbia were also built around the same time. As part of the Gateway Program37 km of congested four-lane Highway 1 freeway in Metro Vancouver were upgraded to a more modern eight-lane build out starting in This project continues into the present, with the current goal of rebuilding the freeway to a modern, minimum six-lane layout from Langley to Abbotsford by The twinning of the highway in Alberta's Banff National Park continued with four-lane highway opening as far as the Highway 93 junction north of Lake Louise by the winter of Parks Canada completed twinning the final 8.
Stoney Trail began construction inand was usable as a bypass around Calgary when its northeastern section opened in Although not officially part of the Trans-Canada Highway system, Stoney Trail plays a critical role in providing through traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway with a way around the city.
In the Regina Bypass opened, resulting in the Trans-Canada Highway being realigned around the city, and bypassing a section of heavily-signalized arterial road on Victoria Avenue. The s saw the improvement of other routes in the Trans-Canada Highway system as well. Ontario Highway began to be extended towards Sudbury, replacing Highway 69 and resulting in a freeway alignment for part of the Southern Ontario Trans-Canada Highway Route. Work on this project is continuing, with almost 25 km of freeway currently under construction.
