A resource for mitigating the effects of roads on
such as overpasses, underpasses, and crosswalks.
This website is a dynamic part
of a National Cooperative Highway Research Program
sponsored research project titled Evaluation of
the Use and Effectiveness of Wildlife Crossings.
This site is to be used as a resource for those interested
in mitigating the effects of roads on wildlife. It
is a central place to learn of the latest mitigation
methods used throughout North America. These mitigation
methods are aimed at both the drivers of vehicles and
the animals that may enter the roadway.
Resources within this site focus on ecological implications
of roads and mitigation, and the safety aspect of animal-vehicle
collisions. The site was created as a part of this
NCHRP sponsored project through the work of 9 ecologists
and engineers, and one web developer. It is also the
compilation of the work of transportation professionals
and biologists, engineers, planners, researchers, activists,
and consultants across North America. It is for these
people and others that this website was created and
who we are indebted to for their support.
