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

Great picture, isn't it?  They 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.   I understand it didn't take the animals long to learn that this was their "road." 

Chris sent me the report from Snopes.com at
Evidently this just a railroad overpass.
