What to know about Geneva Road closure, bridge project

A project to replace the Geneva Road bridge over the West Branch of the DuPage River will require detours.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of July 22. Crews will remove the existing two-span concrete bridge and install a new, single-span steel girder structure.

During the first stage of construction, Geneva Road will be closed to westbound traffic west of Winfield Road while crews build the northern half of the bridge.

During the second stage of construction, one lane of traffic in each direction will be open over the newly constructed north half of the bridge as the south section is replaced.

Drivers will use this detour route: south on County Farm Road, west on Roosevelt Road and north on Neltnor Boulevard (Route 59).

The project, a joint effort between the county and the Illinois Department of Transportation, also involves drainage improvements and pavement reconstruction, along with the installation of retaining walls, sidewalks and a stormwater storage facility.

The work should be substantially completed by mid-2025.
