In Progress

I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East

The I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project will reduce congestion, and improve safety and reliability along a 15-mile stretch of the highway from Hyak to the Easton, WA. The project corridor passes through the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and intersects a critical north-south linkage zone for wildlife in the Cascade Mountains. Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and its partners will help alleviate the effects of the highway by constructing crossing structures that connect wildlife and hydrology across the landscape, and restoring habitat throughout the project area.

Interstate 280 Wildlife Connectivity Research Project

Interstate 280 is a busy highway on the San Francisco Peninsula. It is also adjacent to wild open spaces for about 20 miles. This means that the native wildlife that live in these wild areas sometimes attempt to cross the highway. When they cross the surface, they usually get hit by a car. This project provides access to wildlife cameras placed at under-crossings that might provide wildlife with a safe way to cross the highway, underneath.

Black's Wildlife Cameras

Our cameras are set to photograph wildlife on our small ranch at altitudes ranging from 1700 - 2100 ft . However, we are bordered on one side by a 1,000 acre conservation easement and are among thousands of acres of range land in the southern Sierra Nevada foothills and mountains . We are in a broad canyon in the drainage of the north fork of the Tule River - abutting NPS land and not far from the Golden trout wilderness.
