It has now been over a year since the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Board approved $8.2 million in funding for two underpasses and one overpass along Oracle Road specifically designed and dedicated for wildlife movement. The crossings will be the first of their kind in southern Arizona and the Coalition remains intimately involved with the continued planning for their construction. We hope this project will be a model for future wildlife crossings in southern Arizona and beyond. Your comments and suggestions are still needed about the Oracle Road project.

These wildlife crossings will provide connectivity in the linkage area between the Tortolita and Catalina mountain ranges. Providing a safe road crossing point for deer, mountain lion, bobcat, javelina, fox, and coyote, among other wildlife, will help maintain a healthy ecosystem and protect our native species. You can help ensure that the crossings are a top-priority in this road project!
