Released in January 2018, Cascade Crossroads is a 30-minute documentary chronicling the story unfolding over and under Interstate 90 just east of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington’s Cascade Mountains.
Here at the intersection of an east-west transportation corridor and a north-south wildlife migration corridor, a monumental project combining conservation, collaboration, and innovation led to the construction of North America’s largest wildlife crossings project in conjunction with major infrastructure improvements for motorists.
The film aims to not only share this unique story but also inspire action in other landscapes facing similar tensions between wildlife and roadways.
