Another article on this with pics...

Tiny spider is a big roadblock - San Antonio Express-News


(Courtesy Photo / Dr. Jean Krejca, Zara Environmental / SA)

Apparently only one was found, but since it is the first one found in three decades (it has been on the endangered species list since 2000), construction has been halted indefinitely. That could mean the project continues as is, be modified or scrapped altogether, according to TxDOT San Antonio District spokesman Josh Donat.

It's definitely an interesting turn of events!

Cheers! M2

Find two of them, put them in the zoo and let them procreate and continue with our intersection.....

Or step on the damn thing and move forward. Not like anyone has suffered these past 30 yrs that they were thought to be extinct.

Oh wow. Say goodbye to nearby property values. Feel bad for homeowners in those adjacent neighborhoods. Some of those homes are (were) $300k+.
