A billion dollar animal overpass on I-90
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A billion-dollar project that will allow animals to travel unimpeded over Washington state’s busiest interstate is now visible to westbound I-90 travelers.
The construction, which is scheduled to finish in fall 2019, will connect two important habitats in the Price Creek area near mile marker 62. Conservation experts say larger animals, like elk, don’t like traveling underground. The overpass is designed to give the easiest and most natural path forward.
