Roads, bridges, and dams

The government used to build things for the good of the people. A thing of the past. Now it's all about the bugs.



A major road reconstruction project in the southwest metro is on hold because of a bumblebee.

The Rusty Patched Bumblebee was just put on the endangered species list. Experts say their numbers have been dropping over the years.  

And that decision has halted work on a busy stretch of Flying Cloud Drive near Highway 101 in Eden Prairie and Chanhassen.

Project managers said that while the bee hasn't been spotted in the work area, the lay of the land makes it prime habitat for the pollinator.

Re: Roads, bridges, and dams

maybe we need the WPA....some of their buildings and structures and bridges are still be used today...........


how many buildings put up today, or road or bridges built today, will last as long as those......and it was

with unskilled labor by the most part.
