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.

15 million? In Pennsylvania that wouldn't even pay for the coffee and donuts for the project!
We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

ROFL, no wonder why the roads have never changed in the 10 years I have been there.

Eyeless spider?

Consider your species lucky you lasted this long.
