$6M overpass near Redmond for wildlife
Monday, May 7, 2012
REDMOND, Wash. (AP) -- King County plans to spend about $6 million building an overpass near Redmond just for wildlife.
Planners hope deer, elk, coyotes and cougars will use the overpass to cross Novelty Hill Road, saving themselves and drivers the risk of a deadly collision.
KOMO reports (http://is.gd/wq7bIe ) most of the funding for the critter crossing comes from a Federal Highway Administration grant.
