Underground Cable Replacement

Underground Electric Projects

The City has contracted with Utility Dynamics Corp. to replace underground electric cable in five areas of Geneva in 2019.

The contractor will be starting work the week of June 10 on the north side of East State Street (Route 38) between Longview Drive and Kirk Road.

The other project locations include:

  • 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.

Scheduled power outages may 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. The last phase - Dunstan Road - is expected to start Wednesday, Dec. 11 and should wrap up by the end of 2019, weather permitting. Final landscaping restoration will be finished by May 2020.

Project updates will be posted on the City's "Pardon The Progress" construction blog. Residents can subscribe to receive blog alerts via Notify Me.

Replacing underground electric cable enhances the City's service reliability. Questions can be directed to the City's Public Works Department.
