Oregon Route 422 (OR 422) is an Oregon state highway running from Modoc Point Road near Klamath Agency to US 97 near Chiloquin. OR 422 is known as the Chiloquin Highway No. 422[2] (see Oregon highways and routes). It is 5 miles (8.0 km) long and runs east–west, entirely within Klamath County.

OR 422 was established in 2002 as part of Oregon's project to assign route numbers to highways that previously were not assigned.[3] Sometime before June 2007, an OR 422 shield was placed at the end of the off-ramp from NB US 97, but the rest of the route was still unsigned at that time.

OR 422 has an unsigned spur in Chiloquin, which runs 0.19 miles (0.31 km).[4]

Route description[edit]

OR 422 begins at an intersection with Modoc Point Road approximately one mile south of Klamath Agency and heads east, crossing OR 62 0.16 miles (0.26 km) east of the start of the route.[5] OR 422 then continues east, crossing US 97 approximately 1-mile (1.6 km) west of Chiloquin and turning southeast into Chiloquin.[5][6] At the intersection of Chocktoot Street and Chiloquin Road in Chiloquin, OR 422S heads southeast along Chocktoot Street and OR 422 turns southwest along Chiloquin Road, ending at an intersection with US 97 approximately 0.60 miles (0.97 km) beyond the city limits.[6]
