Rocky Point Wildlife Crossing

Every year, approximately 100 mule deer are killed on the 20-mile stretch of US-30 south of Montpelier.

The Idaho Transportation Department and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game are working together to design wildlife crossings south of Montpelier on US-30 at Rocky Point (between mileposts 443 and 448). Thousands of mule deer cross the road here every year as they migrate from summer habitat in the Caribou Mountains to their winter range on the Bear Lake Plateau.

Safety is ITD's #1 Priority

Every year, approximately 100 mule deer are killed on the 20-mile stretch of US-30 south of Montpelier. The majority of those collisions occur along the 5-Mile stretch at Rocky Point. The goal of these crossings is to greatly reduce the number of wildlife-vehicle collisions along this stretch of highway, increasing safety for motorists and improving long-term outcomes for wildlife populations.
