Bexley Investing in Upgraded Traffic Signal Technology in 2019

Bexley plans to install new fiber optic technology on City traffic signals beginning in 2019. This new technology, which meets the guidelines set forth to also receive funding under the Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Program, will allow Bexley's signals to be connected to a regional traffic signal network for Central Ohio.

These improvements will help to move traffic along at a better pace, while improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption. Signals will remain in operation and minimal traffic disruption is expected, although brief lane closures may offcur while cable and equipment is being installed.

Questions about the project can be directed to the City's Service Director, Bill Dorman, who can be reached at

Parade Route on Roosevelt

Wednesday, July 4 at 9:30 am

We have had numerous calls to City Hall regarding the Fourth of July parade route and the construction on Roosevelt. The route will not be affected by this construction, and we have arranged for the street to be accessible for the parade on July 4th.

While we have your attention - register your business or organization to be in the parade today! Do you know someone who has generously given back to our wonderful community? If so, nominate them for Citizen of the Year! Through the generosity of the Bexley Community Foundation, we are giving away four $250 grants for residents to build neighborhood floats to be in the parade! Parade floats are the best way to show your neighborhood spirit! More information about these grants can be found online, and if you and your neighborhood would like to apply, please click here for an application.
