Project Location: Muskingum River Parkway
Project Number: DNR-180038
Scope of Project: A. Project Description Professional engineering services are being requested to provide final design services, construction bidding documents, soil borings, surveying and construction administration for rehabilitation of a series of dams with navigation locks along the Muskingum River Parkway owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and located in Muskingum, Morgan, and Washington Counties. This project will be carried out under the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method. The system consists of Lock and Dams No. 2 through No. 11, which are regulated by the ODNR Dam Safety Program as Class II structures. These structures are part of a river navigation system that was constructed in the 1840s. Many of these structures have unique historical characteristics which have been maintained since their original construction. Construction would be undertaken to ensure public safety and long-term performance as well as functional and aesthetic improvements. The site of the proposed work is located at Lock and Dams No. 4 (Beverly) and No. 8 (Rokeby). Other Lock and Dam locations may be added to address issues of immediate concern as outlined in scope of services below. All work shall be performed in compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements, including Ohio Dam Safety Rules and Regulations. Through this selection process, ODNR contemplates engaging a Construction Manager at Risk (“CM”) to provide pre-construction and construction services for all improvements at the facility. The selected CM’s agreement may be extended and amended to add scope of work as capital appropriations are available in future Capital Bill legislation for projects at Muskingum River Parkway, including additional Lock and/or Dam rehabilitations. However, the Contracting Authority may terminate the agreement with the CM and seek proposals from other firms after successful completion of the work as outlined in the RFQ. All aspects of the project and related issues will be implemented and operated consistent with the Contracting Authority and/or Owner’s policies and procedures. B.
