Early warning system a new way of thinking

The wildlife detection system on U.S. Highway 160 between Durango and Bayfield was put into use Sept. 29, 2008.

Wildlife survey

La Plata County residents are invited to participate in a survey about making county roads wildlife friendly.


The county is working with two consultants, Durango-based Ecosphere, and Selsburg Holt and Ullevig of Denver, to collect maps of highways and previous inventories of wildlife-auto collisions. The public may offer opinions on related issues.


A survey form is available on the county Web site www.co.laplata.co.us. People who want a paper survey may call La Plata County planning director Erick Aune at 382-6271. The deadline for replying is July 24.
