Explanation

1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify and increase the construction contract with Griffin Pavement Striping, Inc. for the Bikeway Development - Pavement Marking, Signage, and Spot Improvements project in the amount of up to $87,000.00 and to provide for additional construction administration and inspection services in the amount of $13,000.00. Total legislated amount is $100,000.00.

The contractor has completed the curb ramp work at Dublin Rd & Olentangy Trail and King Ave & Olentangy Trail. Shared-lane markings have been installed on Greenlawn Ave, Whittier St, Mound St, Main St, Front St, and Civic Center Dr. Sign work for the entire project is nearly complete.

Work to be performed as part of this modification includes, but not limited to, installing Share the Road signs and shared-lane markings on Gay St between Front St and Cleveland Ave; installing pavement markings, signs, and flexible posts on W Broad St between Hague Ave and I-70; installing bicycle detector markings at 31intersections throughout the City; installing 25 bike racks supplied by the City at 12 locations throughout the City; and installing bike corrals at three (3) locations throughout the City.

The additional work could not have been anticipated because at the time the contract was bid out, the traffic control work on Gay St and W Broad St was not designed, the bicycle detector marking locations had not been determined, and the bike rack and corral locations had not been sufficiently vetted. Now that the additional work is ready for construction, total cost of the work is too small for an effective bidding process.

Original contract amount: $178,785.09 (Ordinance 2786-2012, City contract number EL0132824).
Modification no. 1 amount: $87,000.00
Total contract amount, including this contract modification: $265,785.09
