(WOSU) The Ohio Department of Transportation has begun planting wildflowers along highways across the state with the goal of creating habitats for pollinators. “Just last year, we’ve already saved about $2.28 Million in just reducing our mowing of these areas, and that number’s going to continue to grow as we continue to expand these.”
