Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify a contract with Burgess and Niple, Ltd. to provide additional design services to complete a Maintenance of Traffic plan for the Olentangy Trail-Antrim Park to Bethel Road project.

Background: In 2014, the Department was awarded a MORPC grant for construction funds to build improvements to the Olentangy Trail in the area of Bethel Road and Antrim Park.

In 2015, the Department contracted with Burgess and Niple, Ltd. to provide preliminary engineering plans and public involvement for the project.

In 2016, the Department modified the contract with Burgess and Niple, Ltd. to provide detailed engineering plans for the project. (Ordinance 3252-2016)

The project entails the construction of trail improvements to the Olentangy Trail, including widening the trail from Antrim Park to Bethel Road, building a direct linkage from the trail to Bethel Road, and a trail connection along Bethel Road to Anheuser/Busch Park on Olentangy River Road. During final plan preparation it was deemed necessary by the city and Ohio Department of Transportation that additional plans be developed to provide for a roadway detour and maintenance of traffic during the project’s construction phase beginning in 2019. This modification to the contract will allow for immediate preparation of the additional plan details, and will keep the project on schedule for final tracing submittal.
