Broad Street Construction Update

The City of Bexley will begin a water line replacement project on Broad Street from Alum Creek to Gould Road starting July 27th (expected completion by end of November weather permitting). Construction will occur in two block increments and east bound traffic will be reduced to one lane while both north and south bound turning movements within the work zone will be prohibited during working hours. The city will provide updates via onsite message boards, as well as the city's website and the Bexley Blast regarding work zones and recommended detours.

  • Merkle Road south and north of Broad Street will be closed next week (Monday thru Friday) from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM (schedule and weather permitting).

  • Construction crews will continue working on the remaining service tie-ins, backfilling open trenches and place seed. Once complete this section of Broad Street including the gutter area will be thoroughly cleaned and swept.

  • Beginning November 23rd construction crews will remobilize at the intersection of Gould Road and Broad Street.

This water line project is Phase 1 of a 2-phase project, with steet resurfacing and aesthetic improvements scheduled to start in the Spring of 2016.  Both phases are funded by a 75% grant / 25% no-interest loan package from the State of Ohio Public Works Commission.

Please contact the City’s Department of Public Service at 614-559-4220 if you have any questions regarding this project.

Thank You, Bexley Community Foundation!

In 5 short years, the Bexley Community Foundation has awarded over $615,000 worth of grants to benefit the Bexley community by supporting community events, economic development, recreational activities, beautification, lifelong learning, and more.  This week, in celebration of their fifth anniversary, the Foundation has placed signs at projects they have helped fund throughout the City.  Keep an eye out for the blue signs - a tangible reminder of how much the Community Foundation has done to make Bexley "simply the best"! Thank you Bexley Community Foundation!



Recap from the City Hall "Thank You" Event

This past Tuesday, we held a "thank you" event to acknowledge and thank all of those who helped us create and get settled into our new City Hall space.  Thanks to Andrew Rosenthal and GRA+D architecture and design, Palmetto Construction, Continental Development, the Bexley Community Improvement Corporation, Dupler Office, Columbus Sign and Designpath, MKSK, E.P. Ferris, Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter, Kayne Law Group, Vorys, and the Bexley Community Foundation for the phenomenal support and expertise throughout this process.  And a special huge "thank you" to the Bexley City employees who sorted through 60 years of accumulation at our former City Hall, who prepped the former Bexley Monk space for our contractors, and who endured a complex and drawn out relocation process - you all are simply the best and we could not have done this without you!  At our event we also dedicated and named the Community Foundation supported David H. Madison Community Conference Room - the "Madison Room" - right in the same corner of space that was formerly occupied by the "Madison Room" at the Bexley Monk.  Thank you Bexley!
