Long Description:
A wildlife crossing bridge spanning North Oracle Road near Oro Valley named for the late Ann Day, a former Pima County supervisor who championed the county’s wildlife-preservation efforts was completed in May 2016.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department monitors animal usage of the bridge with cameras, which have recorded nearly 2,500 animal crossings since its opening.

An additional 2,000 animals have crossed at a nearby underpass that was also designed for wildlife use. Mule deer make up the majority of animals that use the bridge, while javelinas, coyotes and bobcats prefer the underpass
