Alberta Provincial Highway No. 48, commonly referred to as Highway 48, was a north-south highway in southern Alberta, Canada that existed between the 1950s and 1979. It now forms the southernmost portion of Highway 41.[2]

Route description

Highway 48 began appearing on maps in the 1950s[3] and travelled from the Canada–United States border at Wild Horse, through Cypress Hills Provincial Park, to the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1), approximately 5 km (3 mi) west of Irvine. Other than the small hamlet of Elkwater within Cypress Hills Provincial Park, Highway 48 did not pass through any communities.[2]

Highway 41 was developed in the 1960s and 1970s northeast of Medicine Hat; and in 1979, Highway 48 was renumbered and became part of Highway 41.[4]
