Title:
Habitat Connectivity Infrastructure - Wildlife Crossing Structures
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
Wildlife Crossing Structures consists of points that describe the location and characteristics of structures that enable wildlife to safely cross highways. Wildlife Crossing Structures are habitat connectivity infrastructure that includes highway bridges, culverts, jumpouts, and wildlife guards. Bridges and culverts in the dataset were either designed and built for wildlife or are existing structures that wildlife use to safely cross over or under highways as documented by motion-triggered cameras. Wildlife jumpouts are ramp structures built to allow wildlife to escape the highway right-of-way when trapped inside of wildlife fencing. Wildlife guards, which are similar to cattle guards but larger, are installed to prevent wildlife from entering highways at intersecting side roads. The points in the dataset also have links to additional information such as pictures of the structures and construction plan sheets.
Purpose:
Wildlife Crossing Structures provides information on habitat connectivity infrastructure such as, highway bridges, wildlife jumpouts and guards, that benefit wildlife and reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions. Links to photos of each structure document their use by wildlife and give an idea of how geography, environment, and type of structure can influence the kinds of wildlife that use a structure. Additionally, the information provided in this dataset, including photos and plan sheets, can be used as a reference for successful design and construction of future wildlife crossing structures.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
MilePost values represent the approximate location of wildlife crossing structures on or near state routes. Other attribute values were derived either from GIS databases such as BridgeNumber from WSDOT's Bridge Engineering Information System - BEIST or from field surveys.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These points represent the approximate location of wildlife crossing structures.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Wildlife crossing structure points were digitized in ArcMap using WSDOT bridge and culvert data or GPS points from field surveys with an orthophoto background.
