Alberta Provincial Highway No. 11[1] is a highway in central Alberta. It is known as the David Thompson Highway, and runs from Saskatchewan River Crossing in Banff National Park east through Nordegg, Rocky Mountain House and Red Deer until it connects with Highway 12, 20 km west of Stettler.

It intersects Highway 734 at Nordegg, Highway 11A/Highway 756, Cowboy Trail at Rocky Mountain House, Highway 598, Highway 761, Highway 766, Queen Elizabeth II Highway at Red Deer's western city limits, Highway 2A within Red Deer, Highway 808, Highway 815, Highway 601, and Highway 21 at Nevis.

The portion of Highway 11 between the City of Red Deer and Highway 20 was recently upgraded to a four-lane divided highway due to high traffic volumes between Red Deer and Sylvan Lake.

The intersection of Highway 11 and Highway 781 is slated for reconfiguration to a right in, right out intersection in 2012 due to ongoing safety concerns and incidents at this location.[2]
