Road ecology blog: Wildlife fence and barrier wall associated with wildlife underpass

Road ecology blog: Wildlife fence and barrier wall associated with wildlife underpass for Key deer (8 m wide, 3 m high), US Hwy 1, Big Pine Key, Florida, USA. Most of this road section has a wildlife fence. However, where the roadbed had to be raised to allow for two underpasses, a barrier wall replaces the fence and takes over the function  of keeping Key deer from entering the road and guiding them to the safe crossing opportunity.
