An eight-foot-tall steel fence project has been put into motion in Colorado. The fencing project was approved by the Colorado Department of Transportation, and will be constructed along a part of Interstate 25 in order to protect drivers from deer crossings in the area.
Between six different exits on the highway, deer attempt to cross the lanes on a regular basis. This problem has ended in fatal car accidents over the years. The fences will be designed to look like cloth, and to redirect the deer to an area where they can cross the highway safely.
The fencing project will cost approximately $953,000, and federal funds are the main contributor to this amount. The construction started at the beginning of January, and is expected to be completed by the end of June.
