GENEVA- The City of Geneva has announced that AT&T will begin work to replace outdated cable, Internet and phone service equipment on Dec. 10. The work will begin on the city’s west side and is expected to last until mid-February, weather-permitting.
Construction was originally scheduled to begin in October, but was postponed after the company selected a new contractor. The work will primarily take place along Peck Road from Keslinger to Bricher Roads, and will impact the Prairie Ridge, Westhaven and Prairie View subdivisions.
Crews will be boring through the easements, which are typically a strip of land running along the street, sidewalk, rear lot line or between two lots. The contractor, Phoenix Energy Services will place door hangers on all impacted properties this week. After construction is finished, AT&T will restore lawns this spring where digging has occurred. Residents are then encouraged to water the impacted areas following the grass repairs.
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 to date. A construction map and more information are available on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us.
