Wow, we could use some of these crossways for our area. Haven't seen any of these in person yet.

Why doesn't anyone build bridges for wayward song-writers? LOL!

John, having never been to the Netherlands, I had no idea they actually had land above sea-level! These animal pathways are a great, though expensive, idea. Still worth it despite the cost.

Yes, Dave, I wish someone would build bridges for my songs - I always have difficulty with that part.

I've spent a lot of time in the Netherlands. Most of it is above sea level, though not by much.

Hey Gavin:

Part of my early family came to New Amsterdam from Holland (or whatever they called it back then) and moved west as the English took over and renamed it New York. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to talk with them about the terrain across the pond. LOL! (There are folks here that believe I am 280 years old, though!)

All the best, ----Dave

Aw, Humm, Yes!
It seems our esteemed "Builders" are too busy doing investigations to do any building! Maybe somebody needs to put a finger in their dyke!

Underpasses for animals would be likely cheaper than overpasses and cheaper to maintain. I believe there are some in Canada but I'm not sure. It would save lives of people as well as animals. Hitting a moose has takes many lives in my province, not to mention the property damage.

They build overpasses for prey animals, which prefer the open air and light.
They build underpasses for predators, which are more stealthy.
A company just finished a seventeen mile bypass around Scioto County, Ohio. No animal considerations that I can see. I wonder how much animal/vehicle conflict there has been. In the years of construction I imagined the wildlife learning to use the roadway as a transit path, drinking from the waterholes, eating the newly planted grass, traveling to and from where they've always traveled, then, suddenly, one day it was opened to 42,000 pound trucks hurtling along at 70 miles per hour, and two-ton cars, heavier by moving at 70 mph. I have not heard of conflicts but did see a car stopped and saw a bloodied deer get up and run away, on one underpass of another highway under the new one, and saw a deer near the exit of that same intersection of another occasion. Deer, bear, opossum, skunks, raccoons, lynx, could all be potential conflicts for the drivers.

I know I have seen Turtle bridges in Florida. Bridges that work for humans and animals both would be ideal in my view.

Well, now that you mention it,
Over the years I have noticed more animals killed on the roads when they change from daylight savings time and visa versa. So if you drive during those times be a bit more careful.

I think this might cause more animals falling off the edge, and then getting hit by cars. Ie. if a dog sees a squirrel and chases after him, and he falls off the edge. I dont think that edge looks high enough
