The project has been postponed after the Geneva Public Works Department had to respond to a water main break March 22 and due to inclement weather March 23.
Operations are scheduled to resume Friday, March 24 on Third Street south of the train tracks. The temporary traffic pattern will remain the same.
The Geneva Public Works Department will install a water valve and a fire hydrant the week of March 20 on Third Street south of the Union Pacific-West train tracks which will require lane closures.
Both southbound lanes on Third Street will be shut down starting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 21 from the tracks to Cheever Avenue. A temporary traffic pattern will shift southbound Third Street motorists over into the northbound turn lane once they have crossed the tracks.
Construction will take place during daytime hours, and all lanes of traffic will be reopened late afternoon prior to the evening rush hour. The lane closures will be reimplemented on the same schedule for the next several days until the project is anticipated to be completed Friday, March 24.
The commuter parking lots off Third Street will remain open during construction, but several spots in the western lot will be needed for equipment and vehicle staging.
The project is weather permitting and may be subject to change. For more information, call the Geneva Public Works Water Division at 630-232-1551.
