  • Abstract:
    Animal-vehicle collisions (AVCs) are a growing concern as vehicle miles traveled and human encroachment into wildlife habitat

    continues to increase throughout the United States. Few studies have examined the application of intelligent transportation systems

    (ITS) to modify driver behavior to reduce these collisions. This study investigated the effectiveness of dynamic message signs (DMS),

    an ITS application, to disseminate seasonal animal movement advisories as a speed reduction tool on Interstate 90 in the Bozeman Pass

    area. Driver responses to wildlife advisory messages displayed via other sign applications were also evaluated in a driving simulator

    environment. In addition to evaluating driver responses to in an attempt to lower AVCs, wildlife-vehicle collisions and movements on

    Bozeman Pass were monitored on Bozeman Pass prior to the installation of 0.9 miles of wildlife exclusion fencing targeted on

    modifying wildlife movements; monitoring will continue after the installation to provide data to conduct a before-after analysis

    evaluating the effectiveness the wildlife exclusion fencing in terms of reducing AVCs and maintaining wildlife movements under the

    interstate via an existing bridge where the fence will be installed. The last component of this project documented impacts of AVCs on

    department of transportation maintenance operations.
