Construction on US Route 20 (Spring Street) in Galena, Illinois 


This year, the Illinois Department of Transportation began its multi-year highway construction project on the Galena section of Route 20/Spring Street. Farmers Guest House is located on this stretch of Spring Street, and this project may impact our guests and all those traveling on US-20 through Galena for the remainder of the 2022 construction season, anticipated at least through the end of November. Anyone interested in reserving is encouraged to call or email us directly to discuss how your stay might be impacted. Guests with upcoming reservations at Farmers Guest House will receive updates regarding this project as developments occur and we receive updates from IDOT and the City of Galena.  

As always, we are doing everything we can to ease any burdens and make your stay an enjoyable one.   


What you can expect: 

  • Detoured traffic may impact your travel route, as our section of Route 20 is currently one-way traffic only. 
  • Monday through Saturday, there is potential for construction noise outside the building, including but not limited to beeping, hammering, engine noise etc. Work typically begins around 7am.   


This construction project has impacted parking along our section of Spring Street.  The project itself, along with parking locations, changes each week as the project progresses.  Yet, we are able to identify nearby parking spaces for our guests.  Upon arrival, guests will be assisted with both parking and luggage.  

Downtown Galena is still walkable from the inn for those who are interested in strolling down to Main St.  

Please reach out to Farmers Guest House directly at (815) 777-3456 with any specific questions.  We appreciate your flexibility as we navigate the constant changes this project brings, and we are here to assist in any way possible.
