Wildlife-Vehicle Collision Hotspot Maps

The maps below indicate where wildlife-vehicle collisions involving elk, moose and deer most frequently occurred between 2011 and 2022. Roadkill data used for maps is a combination of Nature Mapping Jackson Hole observations and carcasses recorded by the Wyoming Department of Transportation and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

Due to exclusionary fencing and wildlife-underpasses installed on S. Highway 89 between 2018-2022, we anticipate hotspots shown between Hoback Junction and Rafter J may be weighted by more frequent collisions (especially with mule deer) prior to the construction of these mitigation measures. Early data indicates collisions on this stretch of highway have been reduced by at least 30% in recent years.
