Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into a contract with Columbus Asphalt Paving Inc. for construction of the Camp Chase Trail Sullivant/Georgesville Final Connection on the city’s west side.

Background: This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into a contract with Columbus Asphalt Paving, Inc. for construction of the Camp Chase Trail Sullivant/Georgesville Final Connection on the city’s west side.

In July of 2018 the Department finished construction of the Camp Chase Trail Sullivant/ Georgesville segment. Approximately 200’ of path was unable to be completed, from the north side of Sullivant Road to the current end of the trail along Camp Chase railroad corridor. This construction contract will build this final segment. Once completed, the entire 3.25 miles of the city’s Camp Chase Trail will be fully open to the public.

The Camp Chase Trail is a regional trail, and also the route of the nationally significant Ohio to Erie Trail, connecting Columbus to Cincinnati and Cleveland.
