Road Density is the total length of roads divided by the total WMU area (km/km2). It is identified as a supplemental indicator for Population Status in the interim assessment protocol for Grizzly Bear in BC. Studies have found that most known grizzly bear deaths lie within 500 m of a road or other corridor.

Road density classes are defined to determine between very high to low road density and roadless areas within the South Coast Region.

Class 0 are areas that are roadless (0 km/km2),
Class 1 are low density areas (>0 - 0.3 km/km2),
Class 2 are moderate density areas (0.31 - 0.6 km/km2),
Class 3 are high density areas (0.61 - 0.75 km/km2),
Class 4 to Class 7 are very high density areas (>0.75 km/km2).
