City's Underground Cable Replacement Starts This Fall

Public Works News

As the City of Geneva wraps up its current underground electric cable replacement project, the next phase is scheduled to begin this fall.

After work was completed this spring, final landscaping will take place in September on the following streets in the Geneva East subdivision:

  • East Side Drive (south of Geneva Drive);
  • Britta Lane;
  • Manchester Course;
  • Geneva Drive; and
  • Manchester Court

The City’s 2021-22 underground cable replacement operations will get underway Tuesday, Sept. 7 generally along East Side Drive (north of Geneva Drive) and Division Street. The second project area, located on Lark Street and Keslinger Road, will begin in October.

Replacing underground cable enhances the City’s electric service reliability.

Utility Dynamics, the City's contractor, will be installing conduit through utility easements and public right-of-way for the next several months. Electrical transformers, pedestals and street lights also will be replaced. This winter, the contractor will energize and connect homes to the new equipment. Scheduled power outages will be required as part of the Lark Street project.

Construction is anticipated to be completed in the winter with landscape restoration being finished in the spring, all weather permitting.

Project maps and additional information can be found on the City’s website. Questions can be directed to Jennifer Hilkemann; the City’s Electric Division Manager of Distribution, Construction & Maintenance; by calling 630-232-1503 or sending her an email.
