Wildlife and Roads: Decision Guide Step 2.1
Select General Mitigation Type
2.1 At this point in the process the user will have identified the complement of species that may be affected by the potential transportation project as well as the ecologically important areas outlined in steps 1.2.3 - 1.2.4. In this step the user will decide the primary species that will be the target of the planned mitigation and will select the most feasible mitigation type. These decisions are most effectively made based on potential negative effects on species, ecological and landscape features, engineering and cost constraints, and the need for accompanying mitigation features; e.g., fences and road right of way (ROW) escape ramps.
