Highway 11A:06 is a rare alternate route (lettered highway), in that it does not intersect its parent route, Highway 11. It follows Township Road 390 from Highway 20 in Sylvan Lake to Highway 2A in Red Deer, it can be connected to Highway 11 with any of the Highways 20, 2, 2A or the four grid roads in between. The western terminus extended to Highway 11 near Benalto up to 2008/2009, before being dropped by Alberta Transportation. Highway 11A is known as Lakeshore Drive in Sylvan Lake, and 82 Street in Red Deer.

This section of Highway 11A, including the decommissioned stretch between Benalto and Sylvan Lake, was the original route of Highway 11 before it was rerouted along 67 Street and 30 Avenue in Red Deer and extended east in the late 1980s.
