Douglas County recently began construction of the east phase of Hess Road to I-25. While this is a Douglas County project, the Town would like to inform Parker residents about the construction schedule and its impact to our local roadways.
As part of the construction of the east phase, Douglas County will close Hess Road west of Chambers Road to the Great Plains Way intersection beginning on approximately March 15 (weather dependent) for 60 days. The actual closure date of this roadway will be advertised via variable message boards several days prior to the closure. This closure will be used to expedite construction on this section of roadway. The remaining access points into the adjacent subdivision will not be affected by this closure.
Douglas County is moving forward with competitive bidding of the west segment of Hess road to I-25. Construction for this segment is planned to start this spring and Hess Road is anticipated to be open to I-25 for use in late 2011.
