Follow the red brick road — into Canada.

A new brick sidewalk safely guides pedestrians from the United States and into Canada at one of the northern-most border crossings in the nation. But it’s not just a sidewalk — it serves as tangible evidence of how a small group of public servants used innovation and collaboration to finish a job.

Ranger Jason Snow is the man to thank for seeing it through.

“Thousands of people cross that area every day,” said Snow, who works at the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. “That’s what sparked me to say, ‘We’ve got to do something.’”

It’s a project that makes Snow proud. It removed a significant safety hazard because people no longer have to walk on the I-5 shoulder to reach the park on either side.
