Construction on US 20 Near Galena Begins Next Week

Construction which will force travel delays near Galena for a couple of months is set to begin next week. The Illinois Department of Transportation plans to start work on a portion of US Highway 20 on Tuesday. The work will be done on a 1.9 mile stretch of the highway between West Powder House Hill Road and West Mount Hope Road. That’s just to the east of the Galena city limits. The work will include patching the pavement and resurfacing the roadway. While the work is being done, lane closures on the highway will be common during working hours. Flaggers will also be in place to help direct traffic through the construction zone. Construction is expected to last until mid-October.
