School Bus Route Changes – Road Construction

Hello, my name is Dennis Wills, Transportation Director for Galena Unit School District 120.

I am contacting you in regards to the road construction project on Gear Street.

The primary route affected by this is the White route which services the Gear street area.

Unfortunately there is no way to predict how the advancement of this project will go as it is changing on a daily basis.

As always we will do our very best to provide safe and secure transportation to the passengers affected on this route. However, we could encounter delays along with varying pick up and drop off locations.

For today and the week of September 3rd, we will be having two stops in this area:

The corner of Gear and West street at approximately 7:40 am and drop at 3:30 pm

The corner of Spring street (Hwy 20) and Prospect Street at approximately 7:44 am and 3:34 pm.         Note: in the morning the bus will actually come back by this stop as he returns from the out of town route. However he will return to pick up this stop. This is designed to prevent those passengers from needing to cross the highway to load.

We thank you for your patience as we work through this construction project. We will continue to communicate any special situations as they occur.

If you have and questions or concerns you may contact me at 815-402-2702 or email to


Thanks and have a great day!
