Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into professional services contracts with WSP USA, Inc. in the amount of up to $500,000.00 for the Roadway - Downtown Columbus Multimodal Transportation Study project.

The intent of this project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, additional resources to identify feasible alternatives for enhanced mobility throughout Downtown Columbus. Concepts for potential reconfiguration of streets have emerged through multiple ongoing planning efforts and include dedicated transit lanes, protected bicycle facilities, regional trail connections, and one-way/two-way street conversions. This project will examine the feasibility of potential street reconfiguration alternatives, including traffic operations analysis, right-of-way impacts, parking/curbside management, multi-modal connections, safety needs, assessment of design trade-offs and recommendation of preferred alternatives.

The Department of Public Service, Office of Support Services, solicited Requests for Proposals for the Roadway - Downtown Columbus Multimodal Transportation Study contract. The project was formally advertised on the Vendor Services and Bonfire web sites from September 21, 2022 to October 19, 2022. The city received three (3) responses.
