Toad Hollow  Frog Tunnel - Toad Hollow

Toad Hollow is the famous miniature village located on the eastern entrance of the Toad Tunnel near the main Davis Post Office. Ted Puntillo Sr., the builder of the Toad Hollow village, has also written a book title "The Toads of Davis," which tells the story of the town's legendary toad tunnel. In 1995, the city of Davis spent $14,000 to build a frog and toad tunnel under the Pole Line Road overpass across Interstate 80.

Frog Tunnel

Did you know that the Frog Tunnel was not put in at the exact spot where the frogs cross the road? Apparently, it was put in several feet away from the crossing location, and today the frogs ignore the tunnel and still cross the road where they always have, which means they continue to get squished by cars!

An interesting item along I-80 is the frog tunnel. The city built a tunnel under Pole Line Rd and 5th street between the post office and an empty field on the other side of the road expressly so frogs could cross the road safely.
