Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into professional services contracts with CHA Consulting in the amount of up to $480,000.00 for the Roadway Improvements - Short Street - Liberty Street to Sycamore Street project.

The intent of this project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, additional resources to perform a detailed design for improvements to Short Street from the existing western terminus of Sycamore Street to a point approximately 665 feet south of Liberty Street. The project will connect the existing Short Street to Sycamore Street on a curved alignment, reconstructing Short Street from the new alignment to the Liberty Street intersection. Improvements are anticipated to include pervious paver pavement, curbs, sidewalks, and a shared use path.

The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services web site from May 24, 2018, to June 21, 2018. The City received seven responses.
