Explanation

This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Complete General Construction Co. for the construction of the Olentangy Trail-Antrim Park and Bethel Rd Connector.

Background: In 2014, the Department was awarded funding for construction funds to improve safety and access to the Olentangy Trail, from Antrim Park to Bethel Road. The work will include widening the trail from 9’ to 12’, constructing a ramp with tunnel from the trail to the Bethel Road corridor, and constructing a path along Bethel Road to Anheuser Busch Park on Olentangy River Road. The Olentangy Trail is the busiest trail in Ohio, and several segments of the trail receive over 1,000 users per day. Over 20,000 residents live along the Bethel Road corridor, yet have no access to the trail. As well, the stretch of trail between Antrim Park and Bethel Road is the narrowest, most congested section of the 14 mile trail.

The construction costs for this project will be $3,245,010.67 with a contingency of $230,000.00 and construction inspection $185,000.00 for a total project construction cost of $3,660,010.67
