A $5 million wildlife overpass in Utah has just one problem: humans

For the most part, Utah’s $5 million wildlife overpass at Parleys Summit has been a success since opening seven months ago. Guided by miles of fencing, raccoons, bobcats, deer, elk, moose, cougars, and coyotes have taken advantage of the overpass, avoiding collisions with vehicles on Interstate 80 below. In addition to the animals, cameras have caught skiers, hikers, runners, and mountain bikers also using the overpass.
