Southwest-Central Florida Connector road project in jeopardy (SB100)

A group is fighting to make changes to a controversial road project, saying it could affect more wildlife than first thought.

No Roads to Ruin, a coalition of more than 100 organizations, says that in addition to the impact on the habitat of Florida panthers, the Southwest-Central Florida Connector could affect manatees and water quality. It would run about 140 miles, from Polk County to Naples.
