Turtle protectors on the Causeway

A permanent fence to protect Alabama’s official state turtle from car tires is finally beginning to stretch across the U.S 98 Causeway.

The Alabama Department of Transportation, encouraged by a coalition of federal, state and private partners, is completing the thigh-high chain-link fence along the Causeway that separates the Mobile-Tensaw Delta from Mobile Bay. The fences are designed to keep the endangered Alabama red-bellied turtle in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta where it belongs, and out of the roadway where hundreds have been squashed flat in recent years.
