WSDOT starts construction on I-90 wildlife crossing

Construction begins I-90 wildlife crossing

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. – The Washington State Department of Transportation began construction on the first-ever wildlife crossing over Interstate 90 on Wednesday. 

The bridge is in the Snoqualmie Pass area.

WSDOT is currently building one of the arches that will act as a support for the crossing.

After the arch is complete, workers will create a path on the top of it for animals to walk over the freeway.

The bridge is part of a project that aims to bring 20 underpasses and overpasses to the interstate.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
