Roundabout Ribbon Cutting

Officials from the City of Ashland, ODOT and Ashland County pose for a picture while Ashland Mayor Matt Miller cuts a ribbon to signify the opening of the county's first roundabout.

ASHLAND — It was the first ribbon-cutting ceremony of its kind in Ashland County.

But the occasion — the completion of the county’s first roundabout — called for it on a cloudy Thursday as officials beamed at the architectural feat that is promised to reduce crashes at that particular intersection.
