REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Department of Natural Resources respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital funds in the amount of $1,300,000.00 from Fund 7035, ALI C725R3 (ST PARKS RENOVATIONS/UPGRADE) in FY 22, for improvements to bridges at Tar Hollow State Forest located in Ross County and Zaleski State Forest located in Vinton County.  
  The Tar Hollow and Zaleski State Forests are operated by Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Forestry. Zaleski State Forest is Ohio's second largest forest encompassing 27,882 acres and offers miles of backpacking and bridle trails and picnic areas. Tar Hollow State Forest is Ohio's third largest state forest encompassing 16,446 acres over three counties, and offers miles of hiking and bridle trails, picnic areas, and a primitive horseman camp.

The two bridges included in this project were last renovated in the 1960s and have various structural deficiencies. The bridge in Zaleski State Forest has been closed to traffic per recommendation from ODOT after the last inspection in 2020 and will be the first priority for this project. Due to significant deterioration of the structural components of the bridge, it will be replaced with a new bridge structure.

The bridge in Tar Hollow State Forest has significant rutting of the asphalt roadway approaches and the bridge deck structure is deteriorating with exposed rebar and spalling concrete. The bridge structural components will be rehabilitated or replaced and the roadway approaches will be replaced.

This request includes $100,000.00 to contract with Woolpert, Inc. to provide design and construction administration services. Woolpert, Inc. was selected from a pre-qualified list per ORC 153.68 and OAC Section 153:1-1-02 previously approved with CB# DNR0102010 on 05/24/2021. The remaining amount of $1,200,000.00 includes hiring a construction contractor through a competitive bidding process per ORC 153 and owner contingency of approximately 10%.

Woolpert, Inc. has proposed 22.1% EDGE participation through Resource International, Inc. The construction contractor will be required to have an EDGE participation of at least 5.0%.
