Wildlife and Roads: Decision Guide Step 4

Progress Bar

Step 4 Step 4.1 Step 4.2

The construction phase is the end of the planning phase and beginning of the implementation phase. At this point, the DOTs have the majority of the responsibility for ensuring the agreements made to date are carried out in the spirit of the planners. An implementation liaison, identified in Step 3.3, can greatly assist in this effort.

The Decision Guide is primarily intended to assist in the planning and selection of wildlife crossing structures as mitigation for highway impacts to wildlife. Thus this phase of the guide is limited to noting that for purposes of ensuring wildlife crossing structures work as intended, it is not only important to plan, but also to implement, the elements documented in the implementation plans pertinent to mitigation.
