Project Number: 
Project Description: 

The objectives of this research project are to:

  1. Monitor movements of bear at possible crossing/underpass locations on the SR 96 widening project (Houston/Twiggs Co.), and to
  2. Provide a prioritized list of underpass locations & fencing options with the best potential for reducing bear-vehicle collisions, the least impact to bear habitat, and the lowest cost.
