The Bethel-based Association of Village Council Presidents is calling for a 40-mile road linking the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers, KYUK reports.
A connection from Kalskag to a point near Russian Mission -- the site of a dilapidated tram -- might lower energy costs in the region, the station reports.
"That's the closest part from the Kuskokwim River to the Yukon, and it's been traveled for hundreds of years, probably thousands of years," AVCP vice president Mike Hoffman told the station.
