California to build world's largest overpass to help wildlife cross freeway

August 22, 2019by ncdea

CALIFORNIA, RCD of the Santa Monica Mountains – Los Angeles officials have given the green light to plans for a special overpass meant to allow wildlife living around the city to move over a high-traffic freeway without being put in harm’s way by cars.

The bridge is expected to be open by 2023 and will stretch 200 feet over 10 lanes of traffic.

Architects assisting with the project say the goal is to blend in the overpass naturally with the landscape to minimize disruption for the animals.

“Ideally the animals will never know they’re on a bridge,” Clark Stevens, an architect with the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains, told CBS. “It’s landscape flowing over a freeway. It’s putting back a piece of the ecosystem that was lost.”
