I-80 Animal Bridge Under Construction

By Amy Brunvand

The Utah  Department of Transportation has begun construction of an animal crossing bridge over I-80 just west of Parleys Summit. The freeway slices across a migration route for deer and moose creating a deadly hazard for drivers and animals alike.  The non-profit group Save People Save Wildlife based in Summit County has worked with the Utah Department of transportation to make the wildlife bridge a reality. The project is expected to be complete in October.
