The highway cuts across major wildlife migration routes, and vehicle collisions with animals have been a problem in the area for years.</p><p>The Wyoming Department of Transportation finished six underpasses and two overpasses for the wildlife last year, inspired by similar structures in Banff National Park. They were the first ever built for pronghorn antelope, which can't jump roadside fences, and they avoid enclosed spaces.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 11 Nov 2013 14:29:16 +0000 Rebecca Martinez 49704 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Pronghorn using wildlife overpasses
