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] IDOT State Street Bridge Project - July 10 Update

The original item was published from July 2, 2020 11:55 AM to September 1, 2020 12:00 AM

What's Ahead
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced the following operations will take place the week of July 13 with the State Street (Route 38) bridge resurfacing project:

  • Clean off the bridge deck and place the overlay surface. This work was originally scheduled for the final week of June, but high temperatures and rain/threat of rain the past two weeks have not led to prime weather conditions.

Background & More Info
Two lanes of traffic, one in each direction, will remain open throughout construction of the bridge that spans the Fox River in downtown Geneva. The project will be done in two phases with work starting in the outside lanes and then later shifting to the interior lanes.

Work began in late May and is anticipated to be completed in August, weather permitting.
