    This project, according to the article, started in April. Now it's on hold cuz they found a dime sized spider. I get the endangered species bit and stuff, but don't you think this sometimes goes a little too far?

    SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CBS Houston) — An endangered eyeless spider is holding up a $15 million Texas highway project.

    Construction of the highway underpass project on Texas 151 was indefinitely delayed after a biologist consultant with the Texas Department of Transportation discovered the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver, according to San Antonio Express-News.

    The Express-News reports the spider, which is about the size of a dime, was added to the endangered species list 12 years ago.
