Investigating Potential Solutions to Interstate 80 Barrier Effect on Mule Deer and Pronghorn

The purpose of this study is to collect movement data and develop predictive models for pronghorn to aid Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and agency partners in reducing wildlife vehicle collisions and conserving ungulate migrations along the I-80 corridor. The information gathered from this study will allow WYDOT to make informed decisions as it relates to the pronghorn movement across and along the I-80 corridor. Further, the ability to determine likely successful corridor crossing locations will be shared with the joint WYDOT and G&F transportation committee and the researchers believe will be useful to attract potential partners for funding and ensure wildlife crossing related mitigation funds are allocated effectively.
