"Ecoduct" Do you know what it is? Have you ever seen one?
The first one was constructed in France during the 1950s and today there are hundreds of them.

Ecocuct are structures that allow animals to cross human-made barriers safely and may include underpass tunnels, viaducts and overpasses.

 Saves lives...animals and humans.




This one is Baniff Canada
I may have gone under one and just thought it was a tunnel:)

That's a clever idea! I don't think I've ever seen one. In downtown Dallas there is a tunnel with a park on top.....perhaps that's a version of what you are talking about.

There are some in Wyoming that are used for wild game to avoid vehicles.

There are several that I have seen but most are under the roadway so cattle can be moved safely to different pasture. Peace

Those are such great inventions. We often see so many different types of animals attempting to cross treacherous highways and wish for something like this to protect them. I too wonder if I have driven under one without knowing what it was built for.

Interesting. I did not know about these, but might have gone under one myself!

I'm visiting from Linda's blog and thought I would tell you I was fascinated by some of your posts. I think this overpass is the neatest thing. I will visit you again!
