The Ashland Daily Tidings reports the City Council will decide in November whether to keep the new configuration -- known as the "road diet" -- or repaint it back to its original design.
The road diet stretches from Ashland's northern outskirts to just before North Main enters downtown.
Before the road diet went into effect last October, that stretch experienced an average of 10 crashes per year. There have only been three crashes since the change.
Ashland Public Works Director Mike Faught cautions that a full year of data is needed to properly evaluate the impact.
