Encyclopedia > British Columbia provincial highway 95

British Columbia provincial highway 95, the Columbia Highway, is a north-south highway in the southeastern corner of the province, opened in 1957. The highway connects with U.S. Highway 95, which the highway takes its number from, at the Canada-U.S. border. Highway 95 is one of the most duplexed highways in the province, i.e., it shares most of its route with other numbered highways.


Route details

The 329 km_long Highway 95 begins at the international border in a town called Kingsgate, and follows the Moyie River northeast for 11 km to the town of Yahk, where it merges onto the Crowsnest Highway. Highway 95 follows the Crowsnest northeast for 72 km to the city of Cranbrook, where Highway 95A begins. From Cranbrook, it is another 6 km east to the Fort Steele junction, where the Crowsnest hands Highway 95 off to Highway 93.


From the Fort Steele junction, Highway 95 follows Highway 93 north for 32 km to the community of Wasa, where Highway 95A's east junction is located. From the Highway 95A junction, Highway 95 follows the Kootenay River upstream for 45 km, through Skookumchuck to the town of Canal Flats, at the southern end of Columbia Lake. North of Canal Flats, Highway 95 travels for 58 km along the Columbia River, through the communities of Fairmont Hot Springs and Windermere to the town of Radium Hot Springs, where Highway 93 diverges east. Highway 95 continues to follow the Columbia River north for 105 km, through the locations of Edgewater, Spillimacheen and Parson, to where it terminates at its junction with the Trans-Canada Highway at Golden.


British Columbia provincial highway 95A, the Kimberley Highway, is a 55 km-long alternate route to Highway 95 that passes through the city of Kimberley and the community of Ta Ta Creek. The highway was created in 1968, when Highway 95 was re-routed from Highway 95A's current route to a path through the Fort Steele area.
