(Meredith) — A wildlife bridge in Utah is working as intended by helping animals of all shapes and sizes get across a busy interstate safely.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources posted a video on Nov. 19 that shows a variety of animals — including deer, porcupines, mountain lions, bears, and bobcats — using the Parleys Canyon Wildlife Overpass in Summit County.
"It's working!" the department wrote on Facebook.
"As you can see, the second year of this overpass has been successful at helping wildlife safely migrate over busy Interstate 80 and helping motorists be much safer as well."
The 350-foot-long bridge first opened in December 2018. It's the first of its kind in the state, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
