Mouse crossings cause problems for ECUA

April 24, 2014

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has designed four mouse crossings on Perdido Key. There aren’t any safe ones for humans, but beach mouses will have their own.

In a letter to the federal agency and Florida Department of Transportation, Michael Hamlin, ECUA Manager of Utilities Development, wrote that the crossings cause conflicts with all of its utiiities at each of the four crossing locations, for a total of 12 conflicts. Preliminary estimates to relocated the utilities range from $500,000 to $1,000,000.

Hamlin requests a meeting with FDOT and Fish & Wildlife to discuss design alternatives. Read Perdido key Mouse Crossings – ECUA coordination
