Conservation Northwest
  • Connecting Wildlife Habitat Under and Over I-90

    39,607 views 1 year ago
    The landscape in Washington's central Cascades, spanning Snoqualmie Pass and bisected by Interstate 90, forms an important travel corridor for people, goods and wildlife. Since 2000, through The Cascades Conservation Partnership and the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, we’ve led efforts to reconnect Washington’s north and south Cascades by protecting and restoring habitat and establishing safe wildlife crossings under and over I-90.

    In 2015, through our I-90 Wildlife Corridor Campaign and the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition (of which Conservation Northwest is the administering organization) and by working with WSDOT, elected officials and our community allies, we're focusing on making a critical 15-mile stretch of freeway safer for both people and wildlife. Three wildlife undercrossings are already completed and in use by animals big and small, and two wildlife overcrossings are on their way with construction on the first planned to begin this year.
