WATERTON LAKES NP - Due to an extremely high volume of traffic on the weekend, Waterton Lakes National Park reached the maximum capacity it could safely sustain.

Around  1:00-pm Sunday (Aug 6), Parks Canada was forced to limit access to the park at the junction of Highways 5 and 6 located near the Entrance Gate to ensure the safety of visitors, wildlife and staff.

The traffic control was lifted by 2:30-pm.  

Parks Canada had to direct vehicles to maintain traffic flow on Highways 5 and 6.  Vehicles were not permitted to line up on the highways and only those with camping reservations were allowed in the park at the time.
