BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

BRIDGES
• Bridge Conditions • Orphan Bridges • Condition Trends • Load Reduced Bridges • BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
Responsible Use of Bridge Funds
 The use of grant programs (credit bridge, OPWC) allows us to

leverage our bridge replacement funds 2 to 1 over the next 6 years.

 The next 6 years we have $6,941,250 worth of bridge

replacement projects planned and the county’s portion is $3,127,876.
 6 YEAR PLAN REPLACES 46 BRIDGES, BUT 48 BRIDGES

BECOME DEFICIENT

BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
The Problem
 6 yr. bridge program replaces 46 bridges, but 48 bridges become deficient  39 load reduced – replacement cost $4,820.483  79 deficient bridges – replacement cost of $9,726.705

Even with grant funding Not able to make progress towards the backlog of deficient bridges Need to replace 17 bridges a year for 10 years to catch up Currently only able to do 7 per year

Controlling Operating Costs

STRETCHING THE DOLLARS
• County General Funds ($395,000) •Re-surfaced Sportsman Club Road with GRF in 2012 • Operational Savings ($651,535/Year) • Retirement Buyout (reduced employees from 59 to 43, or 27%) • More than 80 employees during the 1980’s • Reduced snow routes from 25 to 22 • Use pure salt for snow and information technology to improve snow and ice control • Lease equipment? • Greater use of pre-fabricated bridge elements • Maintenance management system (300K consulting grant thru CEAO) • Property surveys online

SUMMARY

Licking County Road System Conditions are worsening  78 deficient bridges(20% of total)  39 bridges with legal load reductions (10% of total)  156 miles behind in paving operations  Other deferred maintenance Revenue is decreasing while construction inflation is increasing  In 2006 Revenue was 7.2 M  In 2012 revenue was 6.8M  In 2005 Lic Co paid less than $29/ton for asphalt and $60/ton in 2012  Per CEAO since 2003 the costs for hotmix asphalt in place has risen from $27/ ton, to $74/ ton, a 270% increase; Redi-mix concrete has seen a 70% increase along with a 214% rise in reinforcing steel costs. Additional Yearly Revenue Needs  Bridge Needs – 1M  Pavement Needs – $3.1M  Other Deferred Maintenance 500K  Safety Improvements (Costs undefined)  No. 3 Statewide Run Off The Road Crashes (Costs undefined) TOTAL SHORTFALL: $4.6M/ YEAR Solutions  Continue operational efficiencies  $5.3M in programmed federal funds  Leveraging OPWC Township funds for bridge construction  Additional Revenue
