CITY OF LOS ENDOS PUBLIC WORKS

Los Endos Boulevard Widening Project--65th to Leonard

This project will widen Los Endos Boulevard from 2 to 4 lanes between NE 65th Street and SE Leonard Lane in the Foothill area on the east side of the city. Foothill is one of the fastest growing areas in the Los Endos area and will soon be home to many new residential construction projects. Los Endos Boulevard, being the only east-west arterial in the area, aside from the Desert Lakes Highway (Highway 94), is expected to be subjected to a heavy load of traffic, and motorists are already experiencing significant congestion.

You may have also noticed a "Jan Haskins Parkway" on the map . . . you'll be seeing that in one of the next couple updates as well. TDOT and the City of Los Endos are trying to get a jumpstart on the massive influx of new Foothill residents.
