Explanation

Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Shelly and Sands, Inc. for the final segment of the Camp Chase Trail between Sullivant Avenue and Georgesville Road.

The Camp Chase Trail is one of the city’s most significant regional trails. Development of the trail began 10 years ago, and over 14 miles of trail have been completed. This is the final segment of the trail, and will open the entire 15 miles of the path, from Madison County to the Hilltop community.

The Camp Chase Trail is also the route of the nationally significant Ohio to Erie Trail, connecting Columbus to Cincinnati and Cleveland. This 0.4 mile section of trail will begin along the south side of Sullivant Avenue, from the current end of the trail, to Georgesville Road. Then proceed north, along the east side of Georgesville Road, from Sullivant Avenue to connect back to the trail heading east towards downtown. Improvements will include the addition of curb and gutter, stormwater improvements, and pedestrian/cycling signalization improvements at the crossings of Georgesville Road and Sullivant Avenue.

In March of 2016 the department was awarded grant funding for this project from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Clean Ohio Trails Fund in the amount of $430,000.

The costs for this project will be $940,000.00 with a contingency of $94,000.00 and inspection fees of $94,000.00 for a total of $1,128,000.00.
