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] Status Update: South Street Bridge Replacement Project

The original item was published from September 9, 2019 4:09 PM to June 4, 2020 8:27 AM

Road Work Ahead
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.
