SHARE Construction on Route 38 in Geneva to start this spring

The Illinois Department of Transportation will be resurfacing Route 38 from the western border of Kane County to First Street in west suburban Geneva later this spring.

The project is anticipated to start late March or early April, and is expected to be complete in June, according to a statement from the City of Geneva. Construction is slated to begin on the west end of the work zone first and eventually progress east into Geneva.

Motorists should expect temporary lane and parking closures on State Street (Route 38) once crews reach Geneva. Two lanes, one in each direction, will remain open for drivers at all times on State Street. Drivers wanting to avoid the construction can take Fabyan Parkway as an alternate route, the statement said.

A majority of the work in downtown Geneva is expected to take place during the evening, primarily between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m, the statement said. Other construction projects include street patching, raising manhole covers and curb improvements.
