AT&T announced plans to replace outdated cable television, Internet and phone service equipment located in utility easements throughout Geneva, starting on the city’s west side.
Construction is scheduled to take place from Monday, Oct. 15 to Friday, Dec. 7, weather permitting, primarily along Peck Road from Keslinger to Bricher roads. The impacted subdivisions include Prairie Ridge, Westhaven and Prairie View.
Work will include boring through the easements, which are typically a strip of land running along the street, sidewalk, rear lot line or between two lots. New conduit will then be installed underground.
Archon Construction, AT&T’s contractor, will be placing door hangers on all impacted properties. Once construction is finished, AT&T will restore lawns where digging has occurred.
Residents are then encouraged to water the impacted areas following the grass repairs.
Questions regarding the project should be directed to AT&T manager Manessa Monson at 847-888-6846 or via email.
AT&T has indicated its underground equipment and infrastructure will be updated throughout the City, but the company has applied for only one construction permit as of October. A construction map and more information is available on the city’s website.
