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.

The original item was published from August 10, 2020 12:33 PM to October 1, 2020 12:00 AM

IDOT's State Street Bridge Resurfacing
The Illinois Department of Transportation has informed the City the agency hopes to finish the State Street (Route 38) bridge resurfacing project within the next week, weather permitting.

Effective Aug. 10, IDOT will be modifying traffic patterns to close the outside lanes. The sidewalk will be closed one side at a time during this phase of operation. Please use caution when driving through the area.

Here is what IDOT has on tap the week of Aug. 10:

  • Bridge deck sealer for parapet, sidewalk & beam seats;
  • Punchlist items
The bridge resurfacing began in late May. Check back on the blog for project updates. For more information, visit the State Street bridge construction web page.

City's Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project
The City has completed the State Street sanitary sewer repair between Route 31 and River Lane.

Geneva began replacing 300 feet of sanitary sewer July 6 on the outside westbound lane on Route 38 from First Street (Route 31) to River Lane. The project was done at the same time as IDOT's bridge construction to limit the disruption for motorists and area businesses.

For more information on the sanitary sewer replacement, call the City's Public Works Department Water Division at 630-232-1551.
