Huron County Commissioners are seeking to reduce the need for speed on Whittlesey Road.

Extending north from Whittlesey Avenue, Whittlesey Road has become a prime residential and speeding area, according to Huron County Commissioner Mike Adelman.

With more homes being constructed and more children coming into the area, speeding and dangerous road conditions are becoming a big issue.

Commissioners hope reducing the speed limit from 55 mph to 45 mph from Whittlesey Road to the Huron County line will alleviate some of the concerns.

"There has been a lot of new development in residential housing," Commissioner Mike Adelman said, "Residents are starting to become concerned with the speed of traffic."

After receiving phone calls from concerned residents, the commissioners have decided to take action.

"The area has become an unofficial bypass to miss the traffic on Milan Road and 250 and to reconnect with 250 and 113 at Milan," Adelman said.
