Endangered Eyeless Spider Indefinitely Delays $15M Texas Highway Project
Construction of the highway underpass project on Texas 151 was indefinitely delayed after a biologist consultant with the Texas Department of Transportation discovered the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver, according to San Antonio Express-News.
The Express-News reports the spider, which is about the size of a dime, was added to the endangered species list 12 years ago.
Dr Jean Krejca of Zara Environmental told the paper the finding of this spider is like ”stumbling on a new Galapagos Island.”
Department spokesperson Josh Donat says it’s just now a wait-and-see plan on what to do.
“We have to wait until the Fish and Wildlife Service gives us the thumbs up for plan B or plan C or whatever plan we end up going with,” he told KSAT-TV. <Source: Endangered Eyeless Spider Indefinitely Delays $15M Texas Highway Project « CBS Houston>
Adding time and money to the cost of an already expensive project? It is no wonder that the socialist-infiltrated environmental movement has managed to cripple a large portion of our economy.
Bottom line ...
We need to stop our enemies, both foreign and domestic, who would use our own laws against us to damage our economy and infrastructure.
