The City will be going out to bid in March to start the next phase of underground cable replacement, which will take place in Geneva East Phase I Unit 1.
Work is scheduled for May to November 2020, weather permitting. Impacted streets include:
East Side Drive from Division Street south of Woodward Avenue to the City’s substation.
Scheduled power outages will be required during construction, and impacted residents will receive notification two days in advance. Crews will be working in either the public right-of-way or in utility easements. Final landscaping restoration will be finished by May 2021.
Replacing underground electric cable enhances the City’s service reliability. Questions can be directed to the City’s Public Works Department.
The City has completed five separate projects as part of the 2019-20 underground cable replacement program.
Utility Dynamics, the City’s contractor, started in June 2019 on the north side of East State Street (Route 38) between Longview Drive and Kirk Road.
The other Geneva project locations included:
Dunstan Road south of Fargo Boulevard;
Center Street between Grant Avenue and Anderson Boulevard;
Route 31 and Third Street intersection; and
The Mews and Kenston Court Townhomes on Seventh Street between Franklin and Fulton streets.
The last phase - Dunstan Road - started in December and wrapped up this winter. Final landscaping restoration will be finished by May 2020.
