State to look for more remains at construction site

The state of Washington will take at least two weeks to excavate a construction site to determine if any more tribal ancestors are buried there.

The dig will occur under an agreement reached with the Stillaguamish Tribe. At least three ancestors have already been discovered at the site.

The $1 million Highway 530 project remains on hold.
