Highways Through Habitats: The Banff Wildlife Crossings Project

Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, has been a testing site for innovative passageways to mitigate the effects of roads on wildlife. The Trans-Canada Highway bisects the park, but a range of engineered mitigation measures--including a variety of wildlife underpasses and overpasses--has helped maintain large mammal populations for the past 25 years and has allowed the gathering of valuable data about wildlife crossing structures.
