The road construction on Eubank Boulevard, Phase 2 is complete. The roadway is now open to public traffic after four months of reconstruction and improvements.
What was before a simply paved road is now a divided vehicular road with added sidewalks, bicycle lanes and pedestrian trails that dramatically improves foot traffic safety.

The public’s patience and understanding during this phase of construction on Eubank Boulevard is sincerely appreciated by the county,” says District 4 County Commissioner Lonnie Talbert. “The road improvements will prove to be worth the wait.”
Eubank Boulevard between Paseo Del Norte and Wilshire Avenue was completely reconstructed. The segment between Paseo del Norte and Corona Avenue is now a two-lane divided roadway with a landscaped center median, curb and gutter, bicycle lanes, an asphalt paved multi-use pedestrian trail, and storm drainage improvements.
