By the look of things going on at the overpass, it could be another long summer/fall waiting at the red lights. It seems to be a different climate up there, especially in the winter. The wind will swirl the snow around and cause ice to form. There have also been a lot of accidents on the overpass and some have proven fatal. Is it more than the rest of Alberta highways? I don’t have those facts. Could there have been more accidents with lights for train crossing than having an overpass? What about the cost to build and repair the overpass compared to train crossing lights? All those different questions to think about as I’m sitting waiting for the green.
