FHA To Recognize WyDOT For Wildlife Underpass Work
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Federal Highway Administration is about to recognize Wyoming for a project to reduce road kill in the Pinedale area.
A nearly $10 million project involved building underpasses and overpasses at eight sites along U.S. highways 189 and 189-191 near Pinedale.
The work also involved installing special wildlife fencing to discourage antelope and other animals from wandering onto the road.
The FHA says it will present the Wyoming Department of Transportation with its Exemplary Ecosystem Initiative Award during a ceremony Thursday morning. The ceremony will take place at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department headquarters in Cheyenne.
