The speed limit for much of State Route 51 in Lake Township will likely be dropping to 50 mph in the near future.
The township trustees have reluctantly agreed to a recommendation by the Ohio Department of Transportation to lower the limit to 50 mph from 55 mph between Fostoria and Pemberville roads. The limit will remain 45 mph between Pemberville Road to the east corporation limit of the City of Northwood.
The trustees Tuesday unanimously agreed to the 50-mph limit after ODOT rejected their request to lower the limit to 45 mph for all of Route 51 in the township.

Hays said the township became eligible for the grant by signing an agreement for electric service with the utility through the Northwest Ohio Aggregation Coalition.
The trustees in June agreed to a contract with FirstEnergy for service to homeowners and small businesses that chose to not opt out of the coalition’s agreement with the company.
