PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — Local government and tribal officials opened a new road Tuesday west of Port Angeles to the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation.

The federal government paid $9 million for the mile-and-a-half long Elwha Valley Road.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://is.gd/FfA0k8) the road could be an important escape route if an earthquake or tsunami blocks the existing Lower Elwha Road.
