It's supposed to start in the spring, but thats always subject to change. I'm only guessing, but this project will be easily 18 month 2yr project. 6 miles to fill in the gap with a lot more work to be done than the current project.

That’s the bridge that’ll be closed for a few months so it can be modified to carry three tracks.I didn't think they were closing the bridge down. The piers and supports already can accommodate a third and fourth deck.
I’ve also read that parking south of the tracks at the Geneva station will be removed (hence the addition at the parking deck built a bunch of years ago. I wonder how the south platform will be handled.
