Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

"Build It AndThey Will Come"

"Build It AndThey Will Come"

This is the actual turnoff from Banff, Alberta, Canada, to the #1 highway to Calgary, Alberta.

Another place but the same problem: Elk and deer cross the highway in spite of the traffic. The Canadians had to build the animals (especially the elk) their own crossing 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 "road. " Arizona's Game & Fish Department, along with ADOT, have faced the same situation in this state's high country, and although their solution differs somewhat, the goal is the same: safety for wildlife and motorists.
