The Holmes County Commissioners approved a request for a speed study on County Road 172. The portion of the road that is to be studied lies along a four mile stretch East of State Route 515. The current speed on that stretch of the road is 55 mph, but concerned residents want the speed to be lowered, prompting the request for ODOT to do the study. Commissioners say that ODOT will do the study and make a suggestion to the county, with the speed expected to be dropped to 45 mph.
