Add comment on:After Criticism, Caltrans to Rethink Deadly Bird Impacts of Petaluma Highway Project
Center for Biological Diversity
The California Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration are reevaluating the impacts of netting on bridge overpasses at a highway-widening project in Petaluma, Calif., which trapped, killed and injured scores of cliff swallows and other migratory birds this spring. The agencies must decide whether to do additional environmental review of the project by analyzing impacts to swallows nesting on the bridges. A new review could consider construction and exclusion alternatives that do not harm birds.
