Thankfully Alligator Alley was the sacrificial lamb instead.
|Alligator Alley is fenced off from the swamp|
to keep wildlife, i.e. panthers, off the road.
They go under the road
via wildlife crossings instead.
Alligator Alley was once much like the Trail:
Single laned and swamp accessible on either side.
Now it's a super highway.
A high-speed cross connect between either coast. But it's tolled, too: $3 each way.
That's why truck drivers still prefer the Trail.
Who could blame them?
