Motorists should be prepared for reduced speeds and single-lane traffic for a short section at km 3.4. Please obey all posted signs, and take extra care when driving in winter conditions. This section will be repaired in the spring of 2014, during an additional, but shorter, road closure.

Park visitors are reminded that Waterton’s winter storms can bring significant snowfall and high winds, which may cause the Akamina Parkway to be temporarily closed for snow clearing. Please check before planning your visit to the park, or call 5-1-1 in Alberta and 1-855-391-9743 outside of the province.

Parks Canada appreciates your patience with the extended closure of the Akamina Parkway, and is very pleased to be able to welcome visitors back to the Cameron Lake area for winter 2013-14.
