I mean, aside from the usual "why is this on Pipedot, it's not tech" comment, this still barely is worthy of being called news, at least on a national (or international) interest level.

Animal overpasses aren't a new idea. They have been in use for years. Most of the time the crossings are tunnels built beneath the roads but bridges over roads for the larger animals (especially big herd animals that might get spooked by the noise and constriction of a tunnel) have been built for decades. The only "new" thing about this is that it is apparently the first such structure being built in the state of Washington.

This is a non-story.
