Wyoming Wildlife crossing could save 750000 per year

/

The mitigation strategy is complete for a portion of US HWY 26 between milepost 48-73 just east of Dubois. Each year, on average, there are 28 wildlife-vehicle crashes reported to law enforcement and an additional 131 recorded animal carcasses are removed from this section of roadway.

The annual cost of these collisions is estimated at $791,400, including property damage, accident response, cleanup costs, and the value of the wildlife killed in the crashes.





The site is under consideration for a wildlife overpass similar to those north of Daniel on US 89/191 and three wildlife underpasses. The mitigation structures should have a lifespan of at least 75 years and the project should pay for itself within the first 25 years.
