In November 2008, the King County Road Services Division installed seven passive infrared cameras to collect baseline data on the presence of wildlife in the vicinity of Novelty Hill Road near the wildlife crossing that will be constructed beginning in late 2012. Cameras were placed on each side of the future crossing and along nearby guideways. As of February 2011, the cameras were triggered 1,728 times by a total of 11 species of mammals. Of this total, 78 percent of photos captured black-tailed deer, the species most frequently involved in damaging animal-vehicle collisions in this project area. This finding has reaffirmed the need for constructing an alternative route for these animals to reduce the threat of collisions. Interestingly, the study has also found that a high percentage of all species of animals detected in the study area (66%), were using animal trails 55-255 feet off of NE Novelty Hill Road, thus posing a greater potential for collisions with fast moving vehicles than first thought.
