USA: Wildlife crossing at liberty canyon

  • Status

    Ongoing

  • Location Unites States

This project aims to build California’s first large-scale wildlife crossing in an urban setting, spanning 10 lanes of the 101 Freeway. This will allow wildlife the safe connection they need to move, thrive and help save the local mountain lions (cougars) currently facing the threat of extinction. 

It will feature engineering landscape design including vegetated barriers to reduce the impact of traffic noise. A temporary nursery will be erected to supply native plants for use in the crossing construction. It involves also the construction of a Mobile Production Station housing the equipment used to prepare the collected seed and native soil biology, for the overall biological rehabilitation of the project site.
