Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to grant consent and propose cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the FRA-161-14.02 project, PID 107792.

The aforementioned project, slated to commence in spring 2021, encompasses resurfacing SR 161 within Columbus from Ponderosa Road to Fairview Drive (FRA-161-14.02-14.31) and from the SR 3 eastern on/off ramps to the bridge over Alum Creek (FRA-161-14.86-15.06).

ODOT will ask the City to approve final legislation for the project at a later date. At that time, the Director of Public Service shall seek Council approval to encumber and expend funds to support the local share of associated construction costs.
