Project Update

Project Updates (updated Aug. 14):

IHC Scott (Contractor) is currently installing the embankment for the roadway alignment, installing storm infrastructure, and preparing for new asphalt pavement between Pradera Parkway and Vistancia Drive.

See “Schedule Section” below for further information.

Bayou Gulch Road Project Fact Sheet


Douglas County is improving Bayou Gulch Road between Pradera Parkway and Scott Avenue by realigning the roadway, installing new asphalt pavement, improving the storm infrastructure, and installing a continuous sidewalk throughout the project. After construction, the entire road – from Pradera Parkway to Scott Avenue – will have one lane in each direction paved with new asphalt, three-foot shoulders, and a continuous concrete sidewalk for pedestrian access.

This project also includes:

  • A new urban storm sewer system that will outlet into an existing permanent water quality pond located on the Cielo Development which was expanded by Douglas County last year in preparation for this project.
  • An extension of a dual 6’ by 6’ box culvert to accommodate the new alignment and “ultimate” four-lane major arterial section roadway width.


Construction started on June 26, 2023, and is expected to be completed in May 2024. Working hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Occasional Saturday work is possible but must be approved by Douglas County Public Works. There will be no work during the holidays.

Road Closure (July 17 through Oct. 31): During construction, Bayou Gulch Road, between Scott Ave and Pradera Parkway, will remain closed.
