Twinning of Highway 43 then ceased for 15 years until a segment within Whitecourt from Govenlock Road/Mill Road, just east of the McLeod River, to east of 33 Street in Whitecourt’s southeast end was opened by 1997. Shortly after this segment was twinned, the Province announced an aggressive twinning program for the highway from Gunn to the BC border as part of Alberta’s North-South Trade (CANAMEX) Corridor initiative. By 1999, the twinning program saw its first two segments open – from Grande Prairie westward towards British Columbia (halfway to ) and from Whitecourt eastward towards Edmonton (halfway to Highway 658).

On March 1, 1998, the portion of Highway 43 north of Valleyview was renumbered to to allow for the renumbering of Highway 34 (from Valleyview to north of Grande Prairie) and (from north of Grande Prairie to the British Columbia border via Grande Prairie, and ) was renumbered as Highway 43. The renumbering had two advantages – it established Highway 43 as a continuous highway number from Highway 16 through the Peace Country to the British Columbia border, simplifying travel. It also created fewer highway number changes along the CANAMEX Corridor, the Alberta portion of which stretches from at the United States border to the BC border west of Grande Prairie.
