Wildlife Vehicle Collision (WVC) Reduction and Habitat Connectivity, Task 1 – Cost Effective Solutions

Started: December, 2018 End Date: September, 2022 Project ID #4W7576 Status: Ongoing

Objective

The objective of this project is to identify cost-effective solutions to reduce wildlife vehicle collisions, for implementation by state departments of transportation.

Abstract

The objective of this project is to identify cost-effective solutions to reduce wildlife vehicle collisions, for implementation by state departments of transportation. Through a Transportation Pooled Fund, the WTI team will synthesize current knowledge from the US, Canada, and internationally; improve the cost benefit analyses of mitigation measures; field test improved designs and technologies; and coordinate and provide outreach to TPF partners and their stakeholders. Deliverables will include a Best Practices Manual for state DOTs.
