Street Program

The City of Geneva typically plans and receives bids for an annual Street Improvement Project that is timed for construction commencing in the late Spring and completion in the Fall. The Public Works Engineering Department regularly checks on street conditions to determine which streets are the most in need of improvements, and these streets are also coordinated with the Water/Sewer Department for any water/sewer improvements they are planning for the same streets. The annual list of streets are adjusted accordingly. Budget limitations also affect revising the annual list of streets.

The “Street Improvement Project” link listed below includes all of the streets to be worked on for this year. This link is updated periodically to include the low bidder information, contractor contact information, construction schedule, and special construction notices as  necessary.



Crack Sealing

The intrusion of water into the stone base of a roadway accelerates the degradation of the asphalt/concrete pavement. The repetitive freezing and thawing of the water causes the pavement to break up and eventually a pothole forms. The crack sealing operation is intended to slow the water intrusion and prolong the life of the pavement. Ideally, the crack sealing operation should occur 2-5 years after a roadway is paved.

A typical crack sealing operation consists of a routing machine that is maneuvered to follow the existing crack, and this routing creates a uniform depth/width crack to accept the hot asphalt sealer material. The routed crack is blown out with compressed air to remove loose debris, and then the asphalt sealer is squeegeed into the routed crack to fill it. The asphalt sealer is allowed to cool until it hardens for traffic. Often the sealer is covered with sand or toilet paper to help prevent it being picked up by vehicles.
