Arizona is at the forefront of addressing the conflicts between vehicles and wildlife in the Nation.  A partnership between 0ur Arizona Dept. of Transportation and Arizona Game & Fish Dept. has resulted in roadway construction strategies that have reduced the cost of fatal and sever injuries in our State caused by collisions with wildlife.  The new Federal Transportation Bill provides additional funding to States and Regions, like the SVMPO, to consider wildlife crossings in our roadway designs.
