Fire Hydrant Flushing - Monday, May 22nd

The Bexley Water Department will begin flushing fire hydrants in the City on Monday, May 22nd.  One crew will be assisgned to the area south of Main Street; one crew to the area between Main Street and Broad Street; and one crew to the area north of Broad Street.  We anticipate this work will take one week to complete and a flushing schedule will be posted and updated daily on this website.

Users may notice that the water is cloudy for a short time during and after this flushing program.  Although the water may be cloudy, it is safe to drink.  However, we advise residents to run the cold water for about two minutes prior to doing any laundry.  If you have any questions relating to this program, please call the Bexley Water Department at 614-559-4270.


Asphalt Paving on Broad Street Begins the Week of May 8th

Construction on Phase II of the city's Broad Street Reconstruction Project is in the final stretch as crews will begin resurfacing starting Monday along the east bound curb lane.  As a result, eastbound traffic along Broad Street will be reduced to one lane.  This intermediate asphalt course will be followed by a final surface course in June or July.  All construction is expected to wrap up by July (weather dependent) barring a few clean-up items. Construction activities include new curbs and gutters, asphalt resurfacing, landscaped medians and aesthetic improvements (standardized signage/lighting).
