KLAMATH COUNTY — Highway 97 was closed Thursday night near the junction with Highway 138 because power poles were across the highway.

Oregon Department of Transportation’s Rex Holloway

The roadway was closed about 7:45 p.m. for 30 minutes in seemingly an easy fix, but Holloway cautions:

Holloway reminds motorists to be aware for anything when driving at night. In addition to Thursday’s power line incident and the potential for deer on the roadway, Holloway said escaped cattle on the roadway caused an accident earlier this year.
