WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?If You Build It, THEY Will Come...This is the actual turn-off from Banff, Alberta, Canada to the #1 highway to Calgary. They built the animals their own crossing (especially the elk) because that was where the natural crossing was, and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents. It didn't take the animals long to learn that this was their very own bridge!They make crosswalks for pedestrians, why not make more of these for migratory paths? Up between Park City and Kamas, Utah, they have high fences along the road with occasional walk-over mounds for the migratory animals, with flashing lights and crosswalk bars to signal the oncoming cars of the animal occupants. This has cut down significantly in accidents.
