Watch: RTA Delivers wildlife crossings

The 2006, voter-approved RTA plan included funding for wildlife crossing structures to enhance the safety for motorist and the unique animals of our Sonoran Desert region.

The plan funds structures like enhanced culverts, wildlife overpasses and fencing to guide animals to safe crossings in order to avoid collisions with vehicles. These safety enhancements provide connectivity for a wide variety of desert wildlife including coyotes, mule deer, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, javelina, desert tortoise and snakes.
