Who can argue with free?

Could Tamiami have turned into this?

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?
