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 Construction Winding Down

The original item was published from November 8, 2019 12:56 PM to July 31, 2020 3:05 PM

South Street Sanitary Sewer Project
The South Street culvert crossing construction is nearing completion.

This week, crews finished paving the week, the bridge deck has been grooved and the guardrail has been installed. Sidewalk work and a second seal application on the bridge deck is scheduled to take place Saturday, Nov. 9. A bike rail also will be installed in the near future.

The City is anticipating the roadway will be reopened the week of Nov. 18, weather permitting. While the project will be substantially completed, road striping and other ancillary work will still need to take place.

South Street between Burgess Road and Southampton Drive has been closed since Aug. 9 for safety reasons after a sinkhole was discovered by the City. Engineering work took place during September, and demolition began Oct. 17.
