"Wildlife Crossings"


Planes, trains, and automobiles are not the only ways to get around, and humans are not the only creatures moving from here to there. Working alongside existing roadways, these animal bridges aim to help wildlife safely navigate our interstate systems during their natural migrations. Animals on the roadway pose a significant hazard to the wellbeing of their species as well as the safety of drivers. Further, animal collisions are an economic burden, estimated to cost nearly $8 billion in annual repairs, safety measures, etc. These wildlife crossings are popping up around the world as an innovative solution to these problems. Beautiful, innovative, and effective, these installations lessen the impact of our roadways on the natural world.
