Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into professional services contracts with Michael Baker International in the amount of up to $235,000.00 for the Bikeway Development - Norton Road Shared Use Path project.

The intent of this project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, additional resources for the final design of a new shared use path along the west side of Norton Road from the Camp Chase Trail to Hall Road. The path addition will complete a missing link in the bikeway network between the Norton Road bike lanes, which terminate at Hall Road, and the Trail and also serve as a new north-south pedestrian facility where one does not currently exist. In addition to providing connection to the Trail, the shared use path will serve Freedom Park.

The Department of Public Service, Office of Support Services, solicited Requests for Proposals for the Bikeway Development - Norton Road Shared Use Path contract. The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services web site from March 21, 2018, to April 24, 2018. The City received eight (8) responses. All proposals were deemed responsive and were fully evaluated when the Evaluation Committee met on May 2, 2018. The responding firms were:
