Highway 1 is southern Albertamarker's primary east-west highway. It is 522 km (324 miles) long in Alberta. It is part of the Trans-Canada Highway system and spans from the Alberta-Saskatchewanmarker border to the Alberta-British Columbiamarker border. Almost the entire span of the highway is divided with a minimum of two lanes in each direction.

Exit numbering on the Trans-Canada highway began in 2004. As of 2009, however, only the stretch of highway between Canmoremarker and Calgarymarker have numbered exits. It is unlikely that exit numbering will be employed throughout the entire highway, owing to the fact that the highway passes through Calgary as a major urban arterial road.

A review of historical Alberta Official Road Maps shows that Highway 1 was numbered Highway 2 prior to 1941 (while Highway 2 as we know it today was numbered Highway 1 prior to 1941).

Exit numbers

As per Alberta convention, highway exit numbers are numbered from west to east.

While some road widening is underway, not until Stoney Trail is completed will a high-speed route exist across the city.
