Highway 191 and MT-64 Wildlife and Transportation Assessment

In collaboration with the Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC) and the Western Transportation Institute, our team supported the wildlife connectivity assessment that prioritized mitigation efforts for approximately 100-miles of highway in Gallatin Canyon near Big Sky and West Yellowstone, MT. The assessment evaluated safety and wildlife connectivity to prioritize locations for effective and feasible wildlife infrastructure. The site visit determined an array of opportunities that ranged from traffic calming, retrofit of existing bridges, upgrade opportunities for future bridge replacements, and the addition of completely new wildlife overpasses.
