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.

Work got underway in the spring on three integration projects: Glenmore Trail Widening and Interchange Improvements, 90 Avenue S.W. and Southland Drive Connections, and Bow Trail Widening and Intersection Improvements.

The road remains on schedule to open in late 2021.
