A project more than a decade in the making has finally been completed in Ashland.

The newly-renovated U.S. Route 250 bridge over Interstate 71 also now includes a big sign saying "Ashland".

Former Ashland City-County Economic Development Director Evan Scurti, and former county commissioner and current member of the Ashland Community Improvement Corporation Matt Miller took the leading role in raising $250,000 for the sign.

Both say this was a collaborative effort involving the C-I-C, Ashland County Community Foundation, local business owners, and the state of Ohio. 

And Mayor Glen Stewart is among many who are glad to see this attention-getting sign over the heavily-traveled highway, saying it puts Ashland on the map.

The ribbon was cut Tuesday morning on the County Road 1575 bridge, the nearest vantage point to the sign.
