Long Description:
This Oregon State Highway Division (OSHD) reference mark is imbedded in a concrete base between a bridge on US Hwy 97 to the east and railroad tracks to the west. Road crews have spray painted a pink circle around the bench mark and is immediately noticeable when you near the bench mark. It is not located in the NGS database.

BONUS: There is an NGS bench mark nearby that you can log on geocaching.com as well as a Gaging Station waymark that you can log as a visit as well. Click the link below to log the NGS bench mark:
