As already mentioned, rerouting the TCH via Glenmore Trail would only add a nominal distance but greatly improve travelling through Calgary. There are enough links out there pointing to Sarcee & Glenmore Trails being full freeways between Calgary's eastern & western city limits, so the only project that isn't on the books is an eastern Glenmore Trail extension to TCH 1.

There are no links, but you can probably bet there are will utimatly be interchanges at 52 St SE and 68 St SE, the only signals on Glenmore Trail not addressed in the above links.
As for Sarcee Trail? Here
is a study for interchanges at Richmond Rd, 17 Ave SW, and Bow Trail.
