LOMPOC, Calif. (AP) - Construction is nearing completion of six undercrossings designed to allow tiger salamanders to safely travel between breeding ponds and upland habitat on opposite sides of a Santa Barbara County highway.

The Lompoc Record (https://bit.ly/2x80A6L ) says the culverts located along State Route 246 between Lompoc and Buellton are expected to be finished this fall.

The California tiger salamander is protected under the state and federal Endangered Species Acts.
