Engineering work is underway for the South Street culvert crossing replacement project after the Geneva City Council approved a design contract with V3 Consulting Sept. 3.
V3 has completed a field survey, and the survey data is being processed now for the design of the new bridge slab.
Some Geneva residents have asked questions why they have not seen any construction take place since South Street was closed Aug. 9. The sinkhole discovered by City staff earlier that week necessitated the roadway be closed immediately for safety concerns. However, the project did require engineering services and approval from the City Council to authorize the expense.
A tentative construction date has not been determined, but the City is anticipating work will be completed by Friday, Nov. 1, weather permitting.
