The final AB section to be twinned is 34 km in Banff National Park. Work has been underway for 2 years. Most of the twinned highway is open, but the old side is closed for reconstruction. Due to soaring construction costs in AB, twinning of a 4 km section adjacent to the BC has been deferred.

In addition, the AB government is working on a freeway bypass for the TCH around Calgary. A northerly bypass route will be open next year. Most of it will be limited access, but a few at grade intersections will remain. The AB government is also working on removing the remaining at grade intersection east from Calgary to the SK border. An overpass is u/c near Strathmore and a bypass is being planned around Medicine Hat.
