    A review of thirteen different mitigation measures used by transportation agencies - such as warning signs, vegetation removal, fencing, wildlife crossing structures - to reduce WVCs (Huijser et al. ) indicated estimated effectiveness can vary from as low as a 26% reduction in WVCs (seasonal wildlife warning signs) to a % reduction in. Highway engineering and transportation planning have traditionally been highly compartmentalized activities in which various experts work separately on distinct aspects of a project. Yet wildlife crossing infrastructure cannot be planned this way for the simple reason that there is .

    – Construction techniques for wildlife crossings t l u s e rn g i s •De – 42 wildlife crossings are planned throughout the corridor – Range from $28, for a pipe or box culvert to $ million for a wildlife over crossing – Five locations totaling about 14 miles of fencing to channel wildlife to crossing locations. Wildlife Crossing Structures, Fencing, and Other Highway Design Considerations. This chapter on wildlife crossing structures, fencing, and other highway design considerations is from a book on highways, wildlife, and habitat connectivity. They then review and synthesize current knowledge of North American wildlife crossing systems as Cited by:

    A resource for mitigating the effects of roads on wildlife using wildlife crossings such as overpasses, underpasses, and crosswalks. This resource can be used to address the issues associated with wildlife corridors, habitat fragmentation, wildlife-vehicle collisions involving deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, carnivores, amphibians and reptiles, and small mammals, and other animals, and other.   The work reflects promising trends. In recent years, wildlife crossings have increasingly become part of highway construction and upgrades. Along Route 93 in western Montana, dozens of wildlife underpasses and one overpass mark a mile stretch with a history of wildlife collisions.

Main Content The People's Way US 93 - Wildlife Crossing Structures in Use. The US Highway 93 (US 93) reconstruction projects from Hamilton to Lolo in the south and Evaro to Polson in the north combined represent the most extensive wildlife-sensitive highway design and construction effort in both road length and number of crossing structures in North America.

Phase I of this long-term project involves finalizing the research methodologies and collecting the baseline pre-construction data that will be needed to determine what effect US 93’s reconstruction installation of 42 wildlife crossing structures and fencing in 56 miles of highway have on the frequency of animal-vehicle collisions and successful animal crossings, and to ultimately identify.

The construction of the crossings and the evaluation of their effectiveness has provided invaluable insight into maintaining an ecological balance despite urban development.

Design Considerations for Wildlife Crossings By Timothy Miller, Michael Jambor and Daniel Wasniak, P.E. The term “wildlife crossing” describes a variety of structures that are designed or retrofitted to provide safe passage for wildlife above or below a highway.

The structures appear to be particularly effective for deer, which researchers found used them “significantly more than could be expected” than the surrounding landscape. A mile reconstruction of U.S. Highway 93 currently under way between Evaro and Polson, Mont., on the Flathead Indian reservation includes more.

This handbook provides numerous solutions to wildlife-vehicle interactions by offering effective and safe wildlife crossing examples. It initially describes the critter crossing problem and justifies the need to solve it.Wildlife fencing in combination with wildlife crossing structures is commonly regarded as the most effective and robust strategy to reduce these types of collisions while also maintaining connectivity across highways for wildlife (review in Huijser et al., ).Cited by:
