After finishing paving operations earlier this week, IDOT’s contractor has put down the new Route 31 “road diet” lane configuration striping July 23.
Motorists should take note the “road diet” reduces the number of traffic lanes from four to two (plus a center turn lane) from Elizabeth Place to just south of Forest View Drive. The original four lanes of traffic will remain from Forest View Drive heading south into Batavia.
A Geneva citizen group working with their ward alderman proposed the “road diet” as a way to improve safety in the area. The Geneva City Council recommended the plan to IDOT, which granted final approval on how to stripe the state highway.
Once the Route 31 lane markings are completed, crews will finish any punch list items associated with the resurfacing project. Construction is expected to wind down by month’s end, weather permitting.
