Powering Up

Power Restored
Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable electric service to our residents and businesses. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on the our website homepage. Customers can subscribe to receive these updates via Notify Me.

[ARCHIVED] Kirk Road Light Project

The original item was published from June 20, 2018 3:51 PM to April 1, 2019 12:25 AM

Kirk Road Light Project
The Geneva Public Works Department will be working on a Kirk Road street light repair project in June that will impact the traffic entrance to the Kirkwood and Averill Arbours subdivisions.

The project is being done to restore power to the lights along Kirk Road from Averill Circle south to State Street (Route 38). From 1 to 3 p.m. Monday, June 25, crews will be sawcutting pavement on Averill. Access will be restricted to one lane, and Public Works personnel will help guide traffic in and out of the west leg of Averill Circle at Kirk Road. Traffic on Kirk Road is not expected to be impacted.

The pavement cutting is being done in preparation for excavation and repair work scheduled for 8 a.m. to 3 p .m. Thursday, June 28. The pavement will be safe to drive on in between the cutting and repair work. A lane closure will again be needed for the repair project.

Once the repair has been completed, the area will be filled with gravel and patched at a later date. The schedule above may be subject to change based on weather or other electric-related calls coming into the City.
