Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Support for the Interagency Agreement between FHWA and United States Fish and Wildlife Service Determination and Finding for Economy Act Order

The purpose of this reimbursable agreement (RA) between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is to provide partial funding for a multi-year interagency effort to identify and help secure landscape-scale highway crossing opportunity areas for multiple wildlife species in the interstate areas of the Rocky Mountains of Montana and Idaho. This movement across highways is necessary as wildlife populations move across the Northern Rockies landscape in response to changes in distribution and abundance of habitats and key foods resulting from climate change. This project uses grizzly bear and black bear movements because of their broad landscape and habitat requirements and because re-linking grizzly populations can also serve the movement needs of many other species.
