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] South Street Bridge Replacement Project Starts Soon

The original item was published from October 9, 2019 9:57 AM to June 4, 2020 8:28 AM

South Street Road Construction
Demolition on the South Street culvert crossing bridge deck is expected to begin in the coming days after the Geneva City Council approved a construction contract Oct. 7.

The roadway has been closed since Aug. 9 for safety reasons after a sinkhole was discovered by the City. Engineering work took place during September.

Once construction gets underway, the sidewalk in the area will be closed during the duration of the project.

The City is anticipating the roadway will be reopened by Wednesday, Nov. 20, weather permitting. While the project will be substantially completed, road striping and other ancillary work will still need to take place.
