    You cant do this with a simple bridge, erosion is too great. It would have to be a tunnel system and would need very expensive repairs every so often. Sometimes it will collapse and bury people in the tunnel alive.

      Simple bridges are fine and commonly used

      [...]
      Wouldn't a tunnel for cars make better sense?

      Tunnels are much harder to make and need active maintenance

    Why aren’t roads just tunnels with moving floors already? Infrastructure underground. Housing on stilts in the sky. The ground is just nature and farmland.

      Maintenance. If we ever get to a point where most humans are given something like UBI that takes care of all their essential needs then everyone is going to be greedy. We need a fair and moral leadership that resists corruption so no scumbags can just rise to the top of the food chain.

        That’s quite the tall demand. You need a society ruled by high test men and high IQ autists for that

    Because society is ran by capitalist with small hats. Why build a bridge and more greenery when we can build more cramped apartments and McDonalds to make money line go up?

      Yeah, tunnels are heaps cheaper, and there are lots more of them.
      I've seen loads of animal tunnels but I've never seen an animal bridge.

        Tunneling is almost always way more expensive and time consuming than building a bridge. Especially when tunneling underneath an active roadway.
        Unless you're talking about those culverts under small roads that they throw some plants and rocks into then call it an animal crossing.

    You are all morons. The reason is cost. That's it. It's just money. Roads take a shitload of money to maintain, and few places have enough in the budget to maintain them as well as they'd like, let alone build animal bridges. Even if it could be proven that they are a benefit in the long run due to the cost of animal-related crashes, that is not going to fly due to the big budget hit up front.

      >People are also hurt—about 200 die every year in the more than one million car collisions in the U.S., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These crashes are expensive, too: Deer-car collisions cost an average of $8,190, an elk-vehicle collision is about $25,319, and a moose-vehicle collision is $44,546, taking into consideration human injuries and death, towing, vehicle repair, investigation of the accident by local authorities, and carcass disposal, according to a paper from the Western Transportation Institute (WTI) at Montana State University.

      >There’s one solution, however, that’s been remarkably effective around the world in decreasing collisions between cars and animals crossing the road: wildlife under- and overpasses. Studies that looked at a cross-section of native species' deaths on highways in Florida, bandicoots and wallabies in Australia, and jaguars in Mexico, just to name a few, all show that wildlife crossings save money and lives, both human and animal.

      “You can get reductions of 85 to 95 percent with crossings and fencing that guide animals under or over highways,” Ament says.

      They're definitely effective and beneficial to the local ecosystem, but

      You are all morons. The reason is cost. That's it. It's just money.

      is right about cost. That one they're building near LA costs $90 million then there's the upkeep costs on top of it. And at least for that one pedestrians aren't allowed to use it so it's a tough sell for most municipalities.

        That’s what I said. There’s too little benefit for way too much cost. The fact that people aren’t allowed to use them as well is definitely the kicker though.

        Do you have any idea how much of that is going in to the pockets of corrupt politicians and their friends running a construction company? A simple bridge does not cost 90 million to build

        Accidents in tunnels absolutely suck, plus they usually need ventilation.
