'It's working!': Amptenare in Utah was verheug om te sien hoe diere die snelweg in die natuurlewe gebruik

In 'n poging om ongelukke met wild op 'n besige snelweg te verminder, Amptenare in Utah het kreatief geraak: hulle het 'n brug gebou. Nuwe video wys dat die plan 'n sukses was.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources built the bridge terug in 2018 over Interstate 80 to reduce traffic accidents in Parleys Canyon caused by wandering animals. Verlede week, the agency released a video of the bridge in useaiding moose, porcupines, deer and even bears across the busy highway.
It’s working!” officials posted on Facebook. “Thanks to the Utah Department of Transportation and Utah State University for monitoring the Parley’s Canyon wildlife overpass this year. As you can see, the 2nd year of this overpass has been successful at helping wildlife safely migrate over busy Interstate 80 and helping motorists be much safer as well. Please keep off of this overpass. Dankie!”
The overpass is filled with rocks, boulders and logs, giving wildlife a welcome alternative to the six lanes of traffic on I-80.
    The overpass has boulders, logs, and other natural features.

    Wildlife typically needs time to adjust, and state officials didn’t think there would be such success so soon. Laas jaar, John Gleason, a Utah transportation department spokesman, vertel CNN-geaffilieerde KSL that it might take years for wildlife to start using the bridge.
      We’re seeing results, and it’s an unexpected success to see results this early,” he said in 2019.
      CNN reached out to UDOT for further comment, maar het nie dadelik reaksie gekry nie.
