I-90 is a crucial highway for traverse between the east and west parts of Washington state. But what many people aren’t aware of is that it cuts right through a natural habitat, which is home to so many animals. Many can be injured or killed while trying to cross it.

That’s how people decided to invent something that would extend the forest over the road and help prevent animal accidents.


A group of people came together and invested a lot of money and time into planning a series of special wildlife bridges with lush with plants and greenery to help guide the animals safely across.

Inventions like these bridges are productive steps towards sharing land and resources more harmoniously with wildlife. Considering how countless animals are killed on the roads every year across the U.S it should even be encouraged.


The first of 20 bridges underway was just completed and the camera has already caught footage of an animal making good use of the invention. This proves that it’s a really beneficial invention for wild animals.

The coyote who crossed the highway probably had no idea just how excited people would be about him safely crossing the highway near the Snoqualmie Pass.

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) tweeted a short video of his safe crossing- and couldn’t help drawing a similarity to an accident-prone cartoon coyote, Wile E. Coyote, too.

“This coyote safely crossed the highway, avoiding traffic, anvils, ACME rockets & roadrunners!” WSDOT wrote.

The most amazing thing is, all the 20 bridges are expected to be completed by 2029.
