An international contest is underway to design inexpensive, innovative and attractive animal bridges that cross highways. The contest is sponsored by the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University and the Woodstock Foundation in New York.
The contest focuses on West Vail Pass in Colorado for the site of the bridge. Officials and conservationists have been working to protect migration routes for animals in the state. A wildlife crossing will help protect the animals by decreasing the number of traffic collisions.
