History[edit]

Until the 1976 renumbering, most of SR 397 was State Route 59, defined by 1937.[2] At one point, SR 397 only used Westergard Road east of Westfall Road, turning north there to return to I-80/US 95 at Perth.[3] Later, possibly when SR 860 was added, Westfall Road was dropped and SR 397 was extended west to meet SR 860.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Pershing County.
