The Elk Bridge

Portions of the Trans-Canada Highsway run through wilderness and agriculture land and were originally a single lane. In order to provide less disruption and avoid collisions between vehicles and large animals, Parks Canada has undertaken projects in areas such as Banff to twin some portions and install fences along both sides of the roadway, while creating overpasses/underpasses to allow safe passage.

The above picture is doing the e-mail circuit claiming to an elk overpass. Folks familiar with the area, however, say it is a CPR bridge.
