KLAMATH- A group appointed by Congressman Jared Huffman will soon begin working to find alternatives to the Last Chance Grade.

Congressman Huffman will announce a stakeholder group on Monday, March 30 in Klamath. The group will explore options to reroute or stabilize the Last Chance Grade, an area of Highway 101 south of Crescent City known for landslides.

About 20 representatives from local government, transportation and tribes will take part in ten meetings to find feasible solutions and develop timelines.

"I think that it's important because it will get all of us together to talk to the decision makers with one voice," Stakeholder and 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg said. "Without last chance grade you have everything from fuel to the future mail to lodging. All the transportation on that road is going to be severely impacted."
