On this day in Canadian history (September 3, 1962) Prime Minister John Diefenbaker officially opens the Trans-Canada Highway to traffic, 12 years after starting construction, eliminating the final 160 km of dusty, gravel road from Golden, BC to Revelstoke, BC. Running almost 9,000 km, from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, BC, the Trans Canada is the longest national highway in the world, stretching over 4,800 miles from coast to coast. Total construction costs for the highway came to over $1 billion. Newfoundland had the second-longest distance to cover, after Ontario, and the most difficult terrain, after British Columbia. With a population of 500,000, it had the second smallest number of people to absorb the costs, and its per capita income was the lowest.
On September 3, 1962, Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and representatives from all ten provinces attended the opening ceremonies at Rogers Pass.
