Got a high school student interested in engineering or the environment? The I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition is offering a $1,500 scholarship to a high school junior or senior enrolling in college within the next two years.
Just east of Snoqualmie Pass, the state Department of Transportation is proposing to expand Interstate 90 from four lanes to six. This stretch of freeway cuts across wildlife areas that must be protected to preserve healthy wildlife populations. The freeway expansion can improve the situation for wildlife with new structures that allow wildlife to safely travel over or under the freeway. Information on these ‘bridges’ that can be used in preparing materials for the scholarship can be found here.
