The new right turn lane on the southwest corner has been excavated and the curb and gutter are in. Paving should occur soon, but the turn lane will remain closed as the final layer of pavement will be coordinated with the Ela Resurfacing project.

- 3/7/15 - LCDOT is working with the Village of Lake Zurich on an intersection improvement at Ela Road and Route 12 in Lake Zurich. Work began in 2015, but a utility conflict caused unforeseen plan revisions and it was decided to suspend the work instead of leaving the road under construction through winter. Once spring arrives, the contractor will return to construct the retaining wall and will then add right turn lanes on US12 for Ela Rd. Traffic signal and sidewalk work will also be part of this project. Expect daily lane closures of the outer westbound lane on US12 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during wall construction.
- 4/21/16 - LCDOT is working with the Village of Lake Zurich on an intersection improvement at Ela Road and Route 12 in Lake Zurich. Work resumed at the intersection on March 28, where crews first placed the steel beams into the ground for structural support, then began to prepare for the concrete pour for the retaining wall. The next steps will include pouring the concrete, some minor underground storm sewer work, followed by excavation for the new right turn lanes. Expect daily lane closures of the outer westbound lane on US12 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during wall construction @(Model.BulletStyle == CivicPlus.Entities.Modules.Layout.Enums.BulletStyle.Decimal ?
