"Evansville, IN --by Chris Williams
Experts expect the closing of a local road will save many lives! But it is not your typical road closing.
A small stretch of a local road is used during salamanders mating. This closing will allow them to move across the road for mating. In fact, this should increase greatly the salamander population.
While most of the Wesselman Park salamander mating is during February and March, it also occurs later in the season. At this point it's unclear whether the commissioners will close the road again during this fall season."
