Hawks Ridge Pass – Now Open!
Walton is pleased to announce that Hawks Ridge Pass, the new wildlife bridge near the community of Hawks Ridge at Big Lake, officially opened on August 19, 2015.
The $4 million wildlife underpass is built to accommodate moose and other wildlife migrating through the region. The bridge has a concrete deck and an off-centre pillar below to allow wildlife more room to travel through the environmental corridor with little impediment.
The project was designed in conjunction with Alberta Environment, City of Edmonton staff and local environmental advocates. The structure is the first one of its kind in Alberta, outside of Canada’s national parks.
