Long Description:
This series of six benchmarks are spread out over two highway exits (north and south) into Klamath Falls as well as three benchmarks on the highway overpass over the Link River in Klamath Falls. Five of the benchmarks are imbedded in the top of concrete side rails and one benchmark (Hwy 97 north exit) is imbedded on the ground between two metal railings. Two benchmarks (both on the Hwy 97 North exit) were in poor condition and had major scratch/drill marks gouged into them. Two benchmarks in concrete siderails in the northern part of the interchange are completely covered in paint and barely any type is legible on them.

*NOTE* One of the Hwy 97 Main Highway Overpass benchmarks is actually a Reference Mark. It's possible that the other two benchmarks on the northern part of the interchange are reference marks too, but are too covered with paint to be legible.

Attached pictures show the benchmarks and reference views to help you locate them if you decide to visit and log these benchmarks yourself.
