HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Calif. (KIEM)-A nearly $10M grant from The California Transportation Commission will afford the Karuk tribal community of Happy Camp much needed road improvements. 

The award will fund the initial phase of the Happy Camp “Complete Streets Project” in collaboration with Caltrans, which will improve pedestrian and general safety along a stretch of Highway 96 that runs through the town of Happy Camp.

The project will also add to the economic potential for the area and will still allow for parking along the corridor, all in support of business, community events and tourism. 

Karuk Tribal Council Chairman Russel “Buster” Attebery says this road improvements have been needed for some time.

“Myself, and council were very excited when we heard we were awarded this grant, for our children and our elders to get out and experience a healthy way to get around. Physical exercise is good for the physical health and mental health,” he said. “Hopefully our elders and our children will meet on this path.”
