Kirk Road Lanes in Geneva Close For 4 Weeks Due To Bridge Repair Work

Bridge repair work is scheduled to begin the week of Oct. 8, 2018, on Kirk Road south of IL Route 38 in Geneva.

The Kane County Division of Transportation reports that one lane of both northbound and southbound Kirk Road will be closed to traffic between Cherry Lane and IL Route 38 in order to safely and efficiently patch portions of the concrete bridge deck over the Union Pacific railroad.

The anticipated duration for the deck repairs is four weeks. This improvement is intended to extend the life of the existing bridge structure.

The improvements will include:

  • Concrete Pavement Patching
  • Bridge Joint Repairs

All bicyclists and pedestrians are advised to avoid using the area during construction for the safety of both the workers and the residents.

Questions and concerns may be directed to Ken Mielke at 630-406-7172.
