Reminder: Dogs Not Permitted at Jeffrey Park



Under Bexley code 618.15(a), dogs are not permitted at Jeffrey Park or Commonwealth Park. We have a frequent number of park visitors each day, especially in the summer, including a large number of young children. Having dogs in these locations can present a safety concern that we are actively avoiding. In addition, dogs can have a negative impact on the fragile ecosystem at these parks, including the wildflowers and the animals that call our parks home. Please note that the Bexley Police Department is actively enforcing these laws. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Columbus Changes to Traffic Signal at Main St & Alum Creek Dr


City of Columbus crews will make safety enhancements to the traffic signal at the intersection of E. Main Street and Alum Creek Drive the week of February 27, weather permitting. Crews will change the signal operation as seen from westbound E. Main Street at Alum Creek Drive.  Under the current configuration, vehicles can make a left turn when the signal is green (green circle) or when there is a green arrow.  

The signal operation will be changed to permit left turns only when the green arrow is lit. A red arrow will be displayed to remind drivers and cyclists in the turn lane that the turn is not allowed until the green arrow is displayed. The changes to this traffic signal will reduce the likelihood of a collision with left turning vehicles while maintaining the flow of traffic.

Bexley's Hands Free Ordinance Now In Effect

Hands-on use of mobile devices restricted

At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, council voted to approve Ordinance 27-16, prohibitting the hands-on use of mobile communication devices while driving.  Under the new law, drivers must either use hands-free devices to make and receive calls (such as bluetooth in-car and after-market calling systems), or pull out of the flow of traffic to make or receive calls.  The law is very similar to laws in place in 14 states and many cities in the Cleveland region.  Signage will be installed at all entry-points to the City, and a public information campaign and a warning period will preceed enforcement.
