Each year, more than one hundred vehicles run into deer, as the animals cross Highway 89, east of Kanab, in southern Utah.

Part of the trouble is, the deer fences -- now in place, there -- were erected in the 195os, and have lots of gaps.

This week the Utah Department of Transportation announced a $2.6-million project to install a new 11-mile section of 8-foot fences.

The deer will be funneled to culverts, to pass under the highway.  And if the project proves successful, UDOT promises to make similar improvements elsewhere in rural Utah.
