The following article and broadcast from KPCW highlights UDOT, DWR, and SPSWs message that Wildlife will not use the Wildlife bridge if there are people are pets using it too. Our goal is to “Keep it Wild” so that the animals will be sure to frequent the overpass. Cameras will be installed so that DWR and UDOT can enforce No Trespassing ordinances. Violators will be cited.
Today UDOT hosted the opening day for Utah’s very first wildlife overpass. This new overpass will now give wildlife another option besides crossing over busy I-80 in Park City, which runs directly through their migratory path.
This new overpass is strictly for wildlife use; humans and pets are prohibited from using this bridge. UDOT and the media are now kicking off an educational campaign to ensure that wildlife can safely use this overpass without human intervention.
Together, thanks to this new wildlife overpass – we should all travel safely through this beautiful, busy corridor.
