Several downtown Geneva streets will be closed to traffic early Sunday, Sept. 21 to accommodate the Fox Valley Marathon race course.
The Marathon begins in St. Charles and heads south into Geneva, impacting downtown streets and main arterial roads. Portions of State Street (Route 38) and Route 31 will be closed to motorists between 7 and 8:30 a.m.
The marked detour route for local drivers traveling eastbound on State Street will be turning south on Seventh Street, east on Fulton Street, south on Fourth Street, east on South Street, and south on Third Street to proceed south toward Route 31. Westbound traffic will utilize the same route in reverse.
Motorists who want to continue on east or west on State Street (Route 38) also can take Route 25, Fabyan Parkway and Randall Road to travel through Geneva. Trucks should avoid the downtown if possible and also use this route.
There will be numerous marathon officials and police officers providing traffic control, so please use caution when driving through the downtown. Officials will be available to assist motorists to and from their residence if they live within the designated race course.
