The southeastern U.S. is one of the fastest growing regions in the country. With the blossoming human population, a growing network of transportation corridors is emerging on sand, peat, limestone, and red clay soils of the Southeast. Along with this growth, state departments of transportation are demonstrating the valuable role that they can play in protecting and enhancing wildlife habitats throughout the region. This article, through case examples, outlines the some of the ways by which several southeastern U.S. states are successfully planning, building, and retrofitting roads with measures to improve landscape connectivity, reduce roadkills, and protect human lives and property from animal-vehicle collisions.
