Wildlife crossings reduce costs and improve safety: study

A study on a wildlife crossing on the TransCanada Highway near Dead Man Flats says it has not only improved public safety, but has also saved money.

The report from the Miistakis Institute and the Western Transportation Institute says there have been fewer collisions between vehicles and wildlife.

It says that has reduced societal costs for damaged vehicles and human injury and death, by anywhere between $18,000 and $129,000.

The report recommends approval of wildlife crossings and fencing at five other sites along the TransCanada in the Bow Valley.
