Using science and data to inform barrier locations with the greatest biological value.
Selecting the proper engineering solution after considering a variety of alternatives that maximize return on investment.
Obtaining adequate funding to permit, construct, and monitor the site post-construction.
Ensuring appropriate permits are acquired to construct the project.
Constructing the project.
Evaluating the success of the project design in meeting connectivity goals.
