Animal-Vehicle Collision Cost Analysis

Started: August, 2019 End Date: August, 2019 Project ID #4W7929 Status: Ongoing

Objective

The purpose of this project is to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of an animal detection system (ADS) for the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT).

Abstract

WTI will lead a cost-benefit analysis of an animal detection system (ADS) for the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT).  MDT is considering a possible installation of an ADS along U.S. Highway 89, near Livingston, Montana.  The analysis will investigate factors such as the number of wildlife vehicle collisions (WVCs) on the road segment; the costs associated with large animal WVCs; costs to purchase, install and maintain a system; and the life span and effectiveness of a system.
