Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify the Pedestrian Safety Improvement - Worthington Woods Boulevard Sidewalks (Sancus to Deer Creek) contract with Strand Associates, Inc.
Ordinance 2850-2018 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Strand Associates, Inc., for the Pedestrian Safety Improvement - Worthington Woods Boulevard Sidewalks (Sancus to Deer Creek) project in an amount of up to $233,880.99. The intent of this project was to design sidewalk for the south side of Worthington Woods Boulevard to fill gaps between Sancus Boulevard and Worthington Galena Road; for the south/east side of Worthington Woods Boulevard from Worthington Galena Road to Deer Creek Drive; and for the north side of Park Road from Worthington Woods Boulevard to Deer Creek Drive. Curb and gutter were planned to be installed as needed during construction of the project along with storm sewer facilities.

This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify the contract to add funds in an amount up to $170,000.00 for additional design needed for the project. This is an unplanned modification that is necessary due to a change in the scope of the project. The project’s original scope was to install sidewalk. However, in consultation with Metro Parks, this corridor has been identified as a major connector and as such the sidewalk is being upgraded to a ten-foot wide shared use path. It was deemed to be more cost efficient to modify the existing contract than to bid the design change.

The original contract amount: $233,880.99 (PO146705, Ord. 2850-2018)
The total of Modification No. 1: $170,000.00 (This Ordinance)

The contract amount including all modifications: $403,880.99
