The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is planning to reconstruct East State Street (Route 38) from Kirk Road to the Fox River. The overall project includes roadway widening, streetscape work, traffic signal and street lighting upgrades. The City of Geneva will be relocating and upgrading underground electric and water utility infrastructure as part of the construction.
The proposed improvements do not require home or business relocations but will necessitate right-of-way and easement purchases.
Work is tentatively scheduled to start in spring 2023. The project is expected to be substantially completed in 2025 with punch list items to be finished the following year.
Old Mill Park
Old Mill Park, located along the east bank of the Fox River north of State Street, will be impacted during construction. Parking access along Water Street will be temporarily closed during construction. A small portion of the sidewalk and curb on the southeast side of the park also will need to be removed and relocated.
