KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - The effort to build a sobering station in Klamath Falls has received a boost from the Oregon Health Authority.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/qMrqqM ) the authority awarded a $250,000 grant that will go toward construction.

Organizers hope the station will reduce the financial burden on the local hospital and jail, the places that now monitor intoxicated people.

Construction is set to begin in August. The sobering station would be among a number of facilities at a planned human services campus on South Sixth Street in Klamath Falls. The complex is intended to be a one-stop option for rehabilitation and human services.
