[ARCHIVED] Route 31 Sidewalk Connection Project Construction Begins Soon

The City of St. Charles and the City of Geneva are partnering to complete much needed sidewalk connection improvements on Geneva Road/IL Route 31 from Willowgate Lane in St. Charles south to the existing sidewalk near Wheeler Park in Geneva. Work is scheduled to begin in mid-August with substantial completion in late fall.

Work includes construction of a sidewalk and culvert extension, installation of retaining walls, stream bank stabilization, and restoration. Kovilic Construction of Franklin Park is the construction contractor, and construction inspection services are provided by WBK Engineering of St. Charles.

There will be times during this work that Geneva Road/IL Route 31 in the area of the construction will be reduced to one lane with flaggers directing traffic. Motorists may experience delays when traveling through this area.

“The City of St. Charles is pleased to partner with the City of Geneva on this project to provide a much-needed sidewalk connection for better walkability between our two communities,” said Karen Young, Assistant Director of Public Works.

Please visit the City of of St. Charles website for a map and updates regarding the project.
