When human progress clashes with nature and wildlife habitat, it becomes necessary to provide a safe haven for animals in the form of wildlife crossings such as bridges and underpasses that allow animals to cross human-made barriers safely. The Nutty Narrows Bridge is such a wildlife crossing for squirrels erected in the city of Longview, Washington, that provides a safe route for squirrels trying to cross the street. While most squirrel bridges are simply a length of rope tied across the road between two elevated points, such as trees, the Nutty Narrows Bridge is an elaborate structure designed to appear like a miniature suspension bridge.

The bridge is located across Olympia Way near Civic Center circle and allows squirrels to move between the Park Plaza office building and a city park across the street. Before the bridge was built, squirrels had to dodge traffic to and from the Park Plaza office building where office staff put out a nutty feast for the squirrels. After seeing too many fatal crossings, Amos J. Peters, the owner of a construction contracting firm, conceived the idea of a squirrel bridge.
