Explanation

1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into agreement with and provide funding to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to construct the FRA-CR3-12.96 project, PID 98557.

The aforementioned project encompasses the reconfiguration and reconstruction of the ramp from Hilliard-Rome Road northbound to I-70 eastbound and is Part 2 of the FRA-70-3.41 project, which is currently under construction. Ramp realignment was not part of the ODOT project and was to be a City project. ODOT has agreed to include this work as part of their project in the area. This will prevent impacting motorist traffic in the area a second time and will be less expensive for the City when combined with the larger overall ODOT project.

2. FISCAL IMPACT
The estimated local share of associated construction costs is $141,350.00. Funding for this project is available in the Streets and Highways Bond Fund within the Department of Public Service. An amendment to the 2017 Capital Improvements Budget is necessary to provide sufficient budget authority for the appropriate project.

3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
Emergency action is requested to allow ODOT to maintain the planned construction schedule and to promote highway safety.
