Dallas Zoo closing Australian exhibit for planned I-35E construction

by Claire Z. Cardona

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/dallas- ... ia-exhibit

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."

Has anyone been to the new hippo exhibit? Would love to see some pics and hear more about how it fits in with the rest of the zoo.

"Brew at the Zoo" takes place Friday, Aug. 31. I've been really vocal about Dallas Zoo and Heritage Village hosting adult events like this, so I want this one to be successful. If you have any interest in attending, here is more info:

$55 is pretty steep for only 6 sample pours...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the Wilds of Africa section designed so that a large portion of it can only be seen from the monorail?
