Clallam to build road to Elwha tribe


Clallam County intends to build a road on top of city of Port Angeles territory that will eventually serve as the primary access route to the Lower Ehwha Klallam tribe. The new road will link the Old Milwaukee Railroad grade, currently Kacee Way, with Stratton Road on the reservation west of Port Angeles. Clallam County Commissioners Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman on Monday directed staff to develop a memorandum of understanding with the city of Port Angeles containing terms, maintenance responsibilities and liability.
