Road projects are finally starting to clear away for the season, but a large project in Geneseo still has another month of work left.

South State street has been closed since the summer.

Its unfinished status pushed trick or treaters elsewhere this year.

The road project is a complete rebuild of State street.

New sewers, trees, and sidewalks are getting installed and the work isn't done everywhere yet.

At one end, heavy equipment and large holes are still the norm, as crews wrap up the underground portion of the project.

At the other, fresh sod and mud helped convince the city to cancel trick or treating in this portion of the city.

Parents say they normally get at least 200 kids combing through the area.

Without all the streetlights and sidewalks installed, they agreed with the choice to keep the area closed to trick or treaters.

"I was hoping they would cancel it, we don't have lights up, there's still the mud, the streets are done, sidewalks are iffy, it's absolutely much safer not to have the kids this year," says Parent Jonathan Grafft. His son, was worried about the candy.

"Usually a bucket full but now I will get a little bit less since we don't have State street," says Aidan Grafft.

The public works director expects the work to be finished at the end of November, barring bad weather.
