Explanation

 

1.  BACKGROUND

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with DLZ Ohio to add additional funds for design of the Intersection Improvements - SR-161 Corridor Study project, 530086-100030, also known as FRA-SR 161-11.48 project, (PID 97169).

                     

Ordinance 1335-2014 authorized the Director of Public Service to accept the SR161 Corridor Study PID 97169 grant, to execute a grant agreement with ODOT for $225,000.00, and to execute a professional services contract with DLZ Ohio in an amount of up to $250,000.00 for the project.  The contract was issued for an initial amount of $231,279.00, with $18,696.00 added per modification #1 to the contract.   The scope of services for this project included completing portions of the Planning and Preliminary Engineering Phases of the Project Development Process (PDP) to develop alternatives for improvements to all intersections, including service road intersections, along Dublin-Granville Road (SR 161) from just east of the I-71 northbound ramps to and including Cleveland Avenue. 

 

The additional funds requested with this ordinance for modification #2 are for the detailed design of a new traffic signal at the service road north of the SR161 and Cleveland Avenue intersection.  This project consists of installing a new mast arm signal to stop the eastbound and southbound movements at the intersection of the western leg of the service road north of SR161 with Cleveland Avenue. The raised median on the north leg of Cleveland Avenue will be adjusted to provide positive offset for the northbound/southbound left turn lanes.

 

The total value of the contract with DLZ for this project is as follows:

 

$231.279.00 - Original contract amount (ORD 1335-2014; PO #EL016349)

$18,696.00 - Modification #1 (ORD 1335-2014; PO # PO038158)

$75,000.00 - This modification

$324,975.00

 

2.  FISCAL IMPACT

The estimated cost of modification #2 is $75,000.00, with the City contributing all funds toward that effort.  Funding for this project is available in Fund 7704, Street and Highway Improvements G. O. Bond Fund, within the Department of Public Service. 

 

3.  EMERGENCY DESIGNATION

Emergency action is requested to allow project schedules to be maintained.
