The article includes a photo of a suffixless AB43 shield on the bypass:

A photo taken at the roundabout facing east (Michael Lumsden MyGrandePrairieNow.com staff)

No big surprise on that, with the 'X' suffix often denoting a planned realignment (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Alberta_provincial_highways#X_series).

TBD: what happens to the old alignment thru town

In theory I could move AB43 now, and change any other routes later once that info becomes clear. But I'll wait on this for a bit.

This replaces 43X. Effects on 2, 40, and 670 are unknown.
