Contract Awarded for Three Allen County Bridge Replacements Through ODOT's Ohio Bridge Partnership Program, 6-26-14
On October 31, 2013, Governor Kasich announced a cooperative effort between the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Ohio’s County Engineers called the Ohio Bridge Partnership Program (OBPP) to spend $100 million of ODOT funds to replace 200 county bridges across Ohio during a three-year period. Allen County will benefit from the replacement of 7 of our 24 county bridges that are currently posted with weight limits or closed. ODOT recently awarded bids for a project for the replacement of three Allen County bridges, which are scheduled to be replaced by November 15, 2014. Two of these bridges are located on Lincoln Highway, just east of the Village of Gomer and the third bridge is on Ream Road south of Amherst Road. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has awarded the bridge replacement project for the three bridges to R & I Construction Inc. from Tiffin, Ohio. ODOT is paying for construction of the three county bridges as part of the Ohio Bridge Partnership Program (OBPP).
R & I Construction Inc. won the contract with the lowest bid of approximately $1,093,000, about 15% less than the state’s estimated cost of the project. ODOT’s estimate for the three bridge replacements was $1,290,000 for all three bridges. There were five bidders on the project. ODOT’s bid results for the three bridges is attached.
The remaining four county bridges to be replaced in Allen County with the OBPP will be sold in the next two years.
