I doubt it. There is a wide right-of-way at 22x. I doubt there's much of a right-of-way protected at 196th. Cranston and Lake Chapperal are set way back from the road.
Plus any further southening (I think I just made up a word) of that stretch just makes the ring longer, and thus more expensive, and it would take more time to drive around it.
There are plans (more distant future) for the east freeway and Stoney Trail to be extended further south as freeways, though.

I'm sure many people already know, but the Bridge over the Bow River on HWY 22x is being twinned, starting this year, according to the city's website.
