Roads are the largest human artifact on the planet; they have fragmented wild landscapes and the wildlife that lives within them, ushered in the 'age of urban sprawl,' and challenged our sense of community. As the transportation crisis grows, a new generation of ecologists, engineers, planners and citizens are working to transform the future of the American road.

Shot in stunning locations throughout North America -- including Banff National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, and the Everglades -- Division Street takes us on a road-trip that looks at the promise of wildlife corridors, the potential for 'greening' our highway system, and the fusion of high-tech engineering with the best and brightest environmental research happening today.

America's road network was largely created before the rise of modern ecology. Now, with greater concern for the environment, the film asks, how do we balance those concerns with our ongoing transportation needs?

Among those featured are:

-Dr. Richard Forman, Prof of Landscape Ecology, Harvard University
-Dr. Marty Main, Professor of Wildlife Ecology, University of Florida
-Linda Chapin, Director of the Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies, University of Central Florida.
