Contest under way to design Colorado wildlife crossing

Firms from around the world are competing to design a wildlife crossing that could be installed over Interstate 70 in Vail.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is working with the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University on the contest and five firms have been selected as finalists. The institute is contest's sponsor.

The firms are in New York, Philadelphia, Toronto and Amsterdam.

The Denver Post reports that the purpose of the competition is to raise awareness about how to "better reconcile human and wildlife mobility" in creative and flexible ways.

The winner of the contest will be honored in Washington in January.
