US6 Wildlife Crossing Alternatives

Wildlife Crossing on US6

CDOT is looking at alternatives to the existing at-grade wildlife crossing on US6 between Heritage Road and 19th Street. CDOT has long been concerned about the number of large animal auto accidents on this stretch of US6. In 2010, they installed fencing to try to limit crossing areas and provide for a safer environment for drivers since large animal collisions cause a substantial portion of the injury accidents along the foothills. The state is looking to design a more expansive project to improve driver safety by providing a grade-separated wildlife crossing where the animals go either over or under US 6. The goal is to reduce the number of vehicle/wildlife collisions in this section of US6. Based on input from the community, they will move forward with design of one of the alternatives. There is no funding for construction at this time, however, so there is no schedule for implementation of a modified crossing.
