I discovered this article a while ago, but I feel that it’s worth bringing up again: These beautiful bridges are just for animals (Grist).

Nobody teaches moose pedestrian etiquette like “look both ways,” but they figure out pretty quickly that crossing the terrifying asphalt river is safer if you take the beautiful grassy bridge.

A little off the beaten path, but I always wondered how animals crossed huge freeways out in the countryside. In some places, it seems a little easier than others!
