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 Opens State Street Bridge With Project Nearing Completion

The original item was published from August 14, 2020 2:24 PM to October 1, 2020 12:00 AM

IDOT's State Street Bridge Resurfacing
The Illinois Department of Transportation opened all lanes of traffic on the State Street (Route 38) bridge Aug. 14, but the State still has a few remaining items to finish with the resurfacing project.

Weather permitting, here is what IDOT has on tap the week of Aug. 17:

  • Complete remaining bike path work;
  • Spray protective coat on two northside piers; and
  • Punch list 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.
