Evaluating the Impacts of the Blennerhasset Island Bridge Crossing (Ohio River) on Wildlife

The West Virginia Department of Transportation initiated research of wildlife populations associated with bridge construction on the Tygart and Middle Fork Rivers (Corridor H) and Blennerhassett Island (Corridor D) to help improve bridge design and decrease negative impacts on wildlife. This research involves collecting wildlife data such as floral and fauna data, line transect surveys for breeding birds, vegetation sampling, and other wildlife studies and completing an analysis of the data collected.
