Jackknifes Make Mess Of Highway 97

The Oregon Department of Transportation says Highway 97 was closed in both directions Friday morning one mile north of its intersection with Highway 197 due to crashes involving multiple jackknifed semi-trucks.  One lane has now been reopened, with flaggers controlling traffic.  Fog and ice are creating dangerous driving conditions in that area.  Motorists should avoid that area until the weather improves, if possible, or make other travel plans.
