Helping Wildlife Get Across the Road in Colorado
This article highlights efforts to make highways safer for wildlife in Colorado, with specific focus on the global ARC (Animal Road Crossings) design competition, which is spurring innovations in wildlife overpasses and underpasses around the world.
Y2Y, which participated in ARC’s 2010 competition, is featured in this article as one of several groups leading those innovative efforts—especially for its work in wildlife crossings along the Trans-Canada highway through Alberta’s Banff National Park.
