The Dallas Zoo is saying goodbye to the animals in its Australia exhibit as preparations ramp up for the multi-million dollar Southern Gateway expansion along Interstate 35E. ... The design will take I-35E near the zoo from four lanes in each direction, plus a reversible lane, to five lanes each and two reversible lanes, he said. The zoo will not lose any land. ... "We're excited," Streiber said. "It'll be an interesting ... time as we go through it, but in the end it will be a better experience to get here and a nice addition to the entrance and approach to the zoo."
The zoo could bring back its friends from Down Under.
"It's a possibility," Streiber said. "We don't have the specific plans worked out. This is a multi-year construction project. We've got the time and space gives us the flexibility to think about that space."
