The overall objective of the Task 68 research was to document existing techniques and measures used to assess, minimize and mitigate habitat fragmentation impacts during highway facility design. The product of this research is meant to assist state department of transportation (DOT) practitioners, regional environmental coordinators and other transportation and environmental professionals in identifying and recommending habitat fragmentation solutions that are cost effective, can be readily implemented using available technology, provide significant habitat connectivity benefits, and reduce overall transportation project impacts on wildlife.
