Route 25 Water Main Projects Begin In October

Posted on October 2, 2023 at 4:00 PM by Kevin Stahr

The City of Geneva will be working on two water infrastructure projects starting Tuesday, Oct. 3  along the Route 25 (North Bennett Street) corridor.

The primary project will be the installation of a new water main on Route 25 that will close the highway from State (Route 38) to Jefferson streets. Construction is expected to last about two months, weather permitting.

The contractor also will be replacing an existing water main crossing at the Route 25 and Division Street intersection. This work, which should take about one week, is being done in preparation for a full water main replacement in 2024.

Route 25 will be shut down to through traffic at both project locations starting Oct. 3 with construction beginning shortly thereafter. Local traffic still will be able to access residential driveways and business parking lots located within the work zones.

The IDOT-approved detour will direct northbound Route 25 traffic to head east on Fabyan Parkway, north on Kirk Road and west on Main Street (Route 64) in St. Charles. The detour will be reversed for motorists heading south on Route 25. All trucks should be using the detour route.

The City will be hosting an on-site public meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10 at the empty lot on the northwest side of the Route 25 and Wall Street intersection, weather permitting. City staff will provide a project overview and be available to answer questions.

Garbage collection and mail delivery shall continue as normal for Route 25 customers during construction.
