KEMMERER — The Kemmerer wildlife crossing project on U.S. Highway 189 will be receiving $500,000 from the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission, according to a recent press release.
The Commission recently met in Buffalo for its September meeting. During that meeting, the Commission once again invested in wildlife crossings to help prevent vehicle collisions with big game, voting to put $500,000 toward the Kemmerer wildlife crossing project on U.S. Highway 189. The project — consisting of underpasses, an overpass and game fencing — will help prevent collisions with mule deer and pronghorn and create a safer road for drivers.
“This is a good start from the Commission. I encourage others to step up with their contributions to support this important project for wildlife,” Commissioner Pete Dube said.
