Environmental Planning


Wildlife Connectivity

ADOT has been particularly proactive in this discipline over the past decade and the infrastructure has become important in not just Arizona but in other areas of the country as well. (We hope to continue to develop a program with established processes that can be replicated by highway project planning, design and construction teams well into the future.) The processes are aimed at streamlining the project planning and delivery process, increasing highway safety and connecting important wildlife and sensitive species habitats. We envision future wildlife connectivity project planning continuing as the potential to mitigate highways for sensitive species by adding or modifying crossing structures and fencing to streamline processes such as National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Endangered Species Act Section 7 by implementing conservation measures that truly make a difference. This will serve to improve safety issues, promote connectivity and highway permeability; and to prevent listed species impacts and future Endangered Species Act species listings.
