Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe unveils plan on reservation highway
The Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe of Washington is facing opposition to its plan for a highway on the reservation.

The tribe wants to make a number of changes to address traffic flow and improve safety on U.S. 101. "From the tribe's perspective, the project will lessen traffic by the tribal campus and ensure the safety of people using the campus and tribal dental clinic," chief operations officer Annette Nesse said at an open house, The Sequim Gazette reported.

But residents said the plan will increase traffic and lead to safety problems. Some questioned why certain issues were addressed but not others.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs provided $1.42 million to help the tribe plan the changes.
