Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into an engineering agreement with Prime AE Group, Inc. for the Lockbourne Intermodal Subtrunk Extension project, CIP 650491-100007. The project will start from the planned end of the Lockbourne Intermodal Subtrunk of the 60” sanitary subtrunk near the entrance to the Norfolk Southern Intermodal Facility located at 3329 Thoroughbred Ct, Columbus, OH 43221 and continue easterly along Air Base Rd. to its upstream termination point near the intersection with Walnut Creek Pike for an approximate distance of 12,750 Linear Feet.

The project will also include master planning efforts for the area in order to establish a more comprehensive and defined approach to providing sanitary sewer service to the area. Due to the tributary area for the Intermodal Sanitary Subtrunk Extension already being known, it is expected that the design and master planning efforts will run concurrently.
