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 bdorman@bexley.org.
