8 Foot Wide Amish Buggy Lane To Be Installed In Ashland County

The construction of an 8 foot wide buggy lane in Ashland County is in the early planning stages.

According to RichlandSource.com, a $5 million ODOT grant will pave the way to add it on both sides of State Route 545. A statewide Amish Travel Study found there were more than 700 buggy crashes over a 10 year period dating back to 2009, which killed 17 people and severely injured more than 130 people.

The final plans are not yet finished, but they expect to begin the project in 2025.
