  The Department of Natural Resources respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital appropriation in the amount of $246,026.35 from Fund 7035, ALI C725R4 (Dam Rehabilitation - Parks), in FY18, for improvements to the retaining wall along the Maumee River at Independence Dam State Park located in Defiance, Ohio in Defiance County.  
  Independence Dam is located on the Maumee River within Independence Dam State Park. The park is located east of the City of Defiance, in eastern Defiance County, Ohio. The dam and retaining wall were built in 1924 to replace an earlier wooden structure. The retaining wall was constructed of large stacked cut stone. The stone has been removed over time by flooding from the Maumee River, the wall has severely deteriorated and undermined the public parking lot in this area.

This project consists of restoring approximately 120' of retaining wall downstream of the base of the Dam. This wall is a structural component of the parking lot area that is Northeast of the base of the dam. The proposed scope of work includes: placement of 1,585 cubic yards of ODOT Rock Channel Protection, Type B with Filter, installation of 211 lineal feet of concrete curb, masonry wall repair and tuck pointing.

The project includes an alternate to rebuild a portion of the original stone masonry wall along the Maumee River in front of the shelter house.

All work on the project is scheduled for completion by August 30, 2018.

The legal notice for bidding this project was advertised in The Defiance Crescent News beginning on January 3, 2018, and posted on Bid Express. A total of eight, (8) bids were received on January 26, 2018. The lowest responsive and responsible bidder for the project is Geddis Paving and Excavation, Inc. of Toledo, Ohio located in Lucas County who submitted a bid in the amount of $208,660.35 for the project, plus the accepted alternate with a cost of $15,000.00.
