May 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Wildlife fence (smaller mesh size towards bottom) funnels wildlife towards wildlife underpass, Hwy 331, Hwy 83 near Freeport, Florida, USA. This is the second of the three underpasses in this road section. It is a bridge that is about 8 ft (2.4 m) high and 24 ft (7.3 m) wide. There are separate bridge structures for the two travel directions with a very large opening in the median.
