The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be sealing cracks in September on Route 38 from Route 47 in Elburn to Route 31 in Geneva. The State provided the City with additional details Sept. 6 about the upcoming construction.
The project is expected to take five days with road work beginning at Route 47 on Monday, Sept. 12 and moving eastward throughout the week. Crews are scheduled to start work Thursday, Sept. 15 on West State Street from Randall Road to Williamsburg Avenue. The moving operations will start with the inside lanes and switch to the outside lanes once completed.
On Friday, Sept. 16, cracks will be sealed on State Street's diagonal parking spaces in downtown Geneva. Work is anticipated to be finished before 8 a.m. Afterward, construction shifts back to the highway's outside traffic lanes from Williamsburg Avenue to Route 31 followed by the inside lanes along that same stretch of roadway.
When construction gets underway on West State Street in Geneva, motorists should expect a moving work zone that will close two lanes of traffic to repair the state highway. Crews will return the week of Sept. 19 to restripe Route 38, which will again feature lane closures and moving operations. The entire schedule is weather permitting.
