In May 2015, a historic land transfer between Alberta and the Tsuu T’ina Nation was finalized, providing certainty that the construction of the southwest segment of the Calgary Ring Road could go forward. This will extend from Lott Creek Boulevard on Glenmore Trail/Highway 8 south to Macleod Trail (Highway 2A) and is approximately 21 kilometres long. The project will also include approximately 10 kilometres of connector road upgrades.

The land transfer is proceeding, and the government is focusing on the delivery of the southwest section of the ring road, which is scheduled to be open to traffic in fall 2022.
