Abstract

This project utilized data collection and structural analysis methods to design a wildlife crossing appropriate to the environmental specifications of Highway 1 on the Batipa Peninsula, Panama. Once constructed, the bridge will encourage permeable population flow between previously divided habitats, thus promoting healthy ecosystems. A complete design in both AutoCAD and AutoDesk Revit was provided to Universidad Tecnológica Oteima to pitch the project to potential sponsors for funding and to the Panamanian government for permission to move forward with construction.
