The City will be enhancing electric service reliability by replacing underground utility cable in four areas of Geneva starting in late August.
The 2022-23 underground electric replacement program areas include:
- South Street (Gary and Sheila lanes);
- Hill Road and Whitfield Drive;
- Burgess Road area (Sherman Avenue, West Street, Millbrook Court, and Radnor Court); and
- Fabyan Parkway from Kane County’s Electronics Recycling Center to the Settler’s Hill entrance;
The City’s contractor, Utility Dynamics, is scheduled to start work on South Street Monday, Aug. 29, and Hill Road Tuesday, Sept. 6, weather permitting. Construction on the remaining two areas will begin later this fall.
Crews 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 project.
Final landscape restoration will begin in the spring, weather permitting.
A project map 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.
