Route 38 Sidewalk Construction
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be removing and replacing non-compliant ADA sidewalk ramps and curbs along Route 38 this fall in seven communities, including Geneva.

Construction is scheduled to take place at most West State Street intersections between Fourth Street and Bricher Road from Monday, Sept. 26 to Friday, Oct. 14 (weather permitting), including:

Bradbury Lane
Syril Drive
Lincoln Avenue
Seventh Street
Williamsburg Avenue
Maple Lane
McKinley Avenue
Sixth Street
West Lane
Pine Street
Anderson Boulevard
Fifth Street
West Street
Charles Street
Eighth Street
Fourth Street
Willow Lane
Grant Avenue
Richards Street

IDOT may start some pre-construction equipment mobilization and posting signage starting as early as Sept. 12.

Temporary lane closures are expected to take place along West State Street while work is in progress. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time to reach their destination. Please pay attention to flaggers in the area directing traffic in construction zones. IDOT's contractor will be prohibited from closing eastbound lanes during the morning rush hour and westbound lanes in the evening rush hour.

Sidewalk segments may be closed to pedestrian traffic to allow for construction activity. Pedestrians should follow sidewalk closure signage.

Freshly poured concrete sections require three days to fully cure. IDOT is asking residents to refrain from walking, including pets, on new sidewalk or curb segments until the surface has had time to set properly.
