    Construction has been terminated until the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Federal Highway Administration can determine the best way to continue the project without disturbing the rare spider's habitat.




    You really can't make this nonsense up.

    This project (in TEXAS no less) is funded by Obama's stimulus. Why are you complaining that it is now on hold?

    Maybe the highway is going to blow away if we disturb the spider? Or big blocks of granite will magically appear on it?

    New infrastructure not bein' built with highway funds...
    :eusa_eh:
    Only 5.2% of Highway Funds Used to Build New Roads
    February 1, 2013 - Approximately 5.2 percent of funds obligated to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) during fiscal years 2009-2011 actually went to the construction of new highways.

    Funny thing about spiders. You knock their webs down, spray some Raid, and they start a new one elsewhere.

    You'd think that no insect is mobile and they are confined to one area. Spiders like warm areas, like under our dryers. Every time I check, there are spider eggs under my dryer. Should I delay moving till the experts can see about relocating them?
