Work can resume at Port Angeles site where bones found
Work can resume at a downtown Port Angeles construction site shut down after bones and other objects were uncovered earlier this week.

Construction was stopped at the International Gateway Transportation Center project to give archaeologists time to determine whether the area is of significance to local American Indian tribes.

A Seattle-based archaeologist says the items are not prehistoric or archaeologically significant.

They include domestic animal bones, brick, glass and ceramic fragments, and beer and medicine bottles.

The objects were found Tuesday while crews were disposing of material excavated from about 14 to 16 feet below street level.

They're pretty gun shy in Port Angeles anymore.

That's the whole thing.

UPDATE: But wait! This article seems to imply it's still on hold.

UPDATE II: Aha, they are different projects. Never mind. More here.
