That is great that the animals are using the crossings instead of going over the road.

We need more of these here in WV maybe our deer vs autos would decrease along with our insurance rates

I have seen these also used in Alaska as you drive north out of Anchorage along the highway. They also use high fences to chanel the animals to the underground crossings. Where the terain allows it works great, especially for Moose and Bear.

They used something similar to this to try to help the "endangered" black bears in Florida. I heard the bears were walking a great distance to avoid them and still becoming road pizza.

These can cost upwards to $50K and are usually installed on major roads that have ample sight distances. Not on county roads were they are needed most. Greater driver attention would be a better solution in decreasing animal collisions.

If you look at the text it says these were on an Indian reservation. They are a lot smarter than most US and state game and fish departments. Money to them comes second to their game.

I think this is a great idea. If cost effective, this should be used through out the country. This would be cost affective for insurance companies, save the lives of both human and animals. The benefits have to out way the cost. I will be sharing this with my online freinds and other animal activists. It's a wonderment what one good idea can do............

Having personally had several very near deer-car interactions, I think that if that thing saves any human lives, it is worth the cost. Around 40-45 years ago, a cousin of mine was almost killed (and did break her back) when they hit a deer. Granted it was back in the days before all cars came with seatbelts, but there are still devastating injuries when a car and deer meet at high speed. So aside from an awesome opportunity to view wildlife, I think those tunnels are true lifesavers, people and critters.

Great pictures! I would hope that this decreases the car & animal crash ratio. Plus it's a great way to see what animals are crossing through the area.

I would like to know the statistics to see whether this reduces car-animal collisions. It is a great idea, is it cost effective?
