With the help of Save the LA Cougars Campaign, Caltrans has signed off on a proposed overpass for mountain lions, coyotes, and other wildlife to cross the 101 freeway in Agoura Hills. The wildlife would be able to roam freely, without the threat of getting hit by a car. But that bridge will be costly and possibly disruptive.
