Before Batavia Avenue goes on a “diet,” the public is encouraged to weigh in on a proposed lane reconfiguration to a segment of Route 31.
The City of Geneva is considering a plan to reduce the number of traffic lanes from four to two (plus a center turn lane) after the Illinois Department of Transportation resurfaces Route 31 from Elizabeth Place south into Batavia this spring. The potential lane reconfiguration, known as the “road diet,” would start just north of Fabyan Parkway to Elizabeth Place.
The community is invited to two open houses at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 at the Geneva Public Works Department, 1800 South St. After the public reviews the plan, the project consultant will give a presentation at 7:30 p.m. followed by audience questions at 8 p.m.
The Geneva City Council will take resident input at the two open houses into consideration before taking a vote on any possible Route 31 configuration changes.
More details about the IDOT resurfacing project will be announced closer to the tentative project start date in April.
