Cascade Crossroads: A New Documentary Film


UPDATE: Cascade Crossroads has been selected to be presented at the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula, Montana, in April, 2018!

A documentary film about building bridges, both literal and metaphorical, chronicling the amazing story unfolding on Interstate 90 just east of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington’s Cascade mountains, where the intersection of a vital east-west transportation corridor and a north-south wildlife corridor resulted in historic conservation, collaboration, and innovation that led to the I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project under construction today.

The I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project, and the wildlife crossings and roadway improvements within it, is a win-win for people and animals that offers a new model for major infrastructure projects bisecting wild places. Commissioned by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, Cascade Crossroads aims to not only share this unique story but also inspire action in other landscapes facing similar tensions between wildlife and roadways.  The coalition is comprised of over forty national and regional environmental groups including Conservation Northwest, Sierra Club, ForterraMountains To Sound Greenway Trust, The Mountaineers, Defenders of Wildlife, American Rivers, Humane Society of The United States, The Nature Conservancy, Audubon Society, and many more, working in conjunction with Washington State Department of Transportation, US Forest Service, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Federal Highway Administration and others.
