FDOT plans state’s first wildlife crossing overpass across I-4 in Polk County

“For the last 50 years since I-4 was built, it has been a barrier to wildlife movement. FDOT’s proposed wildlife crossing overpass will improve the access animals have to their habitats on both sides of the interstate . . . The $11.9 million dollar wildlife overpass will be the first in the state solely for wildlife use. FDOT determined that an overpass is more cost-effective than an underpass.” See More . . .
