St. Johns County Commissioners vote unanimously to protect Twelve Mile Swamp from four lane highway

Kudos to St. Johns County Commissioners for unanimously voting yesterday to oppose a stupid Department of Transportation proposal to build a four land highway right through the middle of 20,000 Twelve Mile Swamp.
Currently St. Johns River Water Management District land, the heavily forested area is home to wildlife, as well as the City of St. Augustine's artesian well field.
Twelve Mile Swamp is included in the proposed St. Augustine National Historical Park and National Seashore.
