New Signal at College Avenue and Charles Street

The City has installed stop signs at Charles Street for north and south bound traffic on College Avenue.  This signal was installed in order to calm traffic on College Avenue and provide a regulated point of crossing for pedestrians on College Avenue, based upon speed and traffic surveys performed over the past several years on College Avenue as well as resident input.


City Launches the Bexley Blast Hotline

We've focused over the past year on developing the Bexley Blast email into a consistent, pertinent communication for Bexley residents wanting to have information about upcoming events and issues in the City.  In order to extend that message to residents who may be less comfortable using internet communications, the City is launching the Bexley Blast Hotline starting on April 5th.  Each Friday, the Blast Hotline will be updated with the same up-to-date information contained in the Blast, slightly edited to provide better access to information and events to residents who are not using the internet.  

To receive Bexley Blast Hotline updates, call (614) 559-4202.
