We, the people of Virginia, are concerned about our local wildlife. Every day, we encounter roadkill on the major highway 199. It is not only offensive, but also concerning for our fragile ecosystem. If this trend continues, there may be dramatic impacts on local wildlife. That is why the people of Virginia are asking the Department of Transportation to convert parts of 199 into wildlife-friendly "critter-crossings." These are highways that allow wildlife to pass underneath it without having to worry about being hit by automobiles. They are common in the west around the Rocky Mountains, and are recommended by biologists. That is why the people of the fine state of Virginia are in support of the conversion of the deadly highway 199, into a wildlife-friendly one. Here is a link to one of the critter-crossings: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/wildlifecrossings/
This is an example of the critter crossings, which are common in the west around the Rocky Mountains.
