TxDOT to Redesign Hwy 48 for Pelicans, Drivers’ Safety
BROWNSVILLE – The Texas Department of Transportation is moving ahead with changes to a section of a state highway that’s been a dangerous spot for pelicans.
The redesign means safer conditions for drivers too.
Pelicans were getting stuck on the highway, getting run over and volunteers were heading out to rescue the birds.
In Dec. 2016, more than 70 pelicans were struck and killed in one night.
They described an aerial vortex creating a pattern of wind gusts that pulls the birds down to the road on cold days.
