Public Hearing on Hyannis' Sea Street Improvements

September 26th at 7 p.m.

The Town of Barnstable Department of Public Works invites interested individuals to attend a public hearing regarding planned improvements along portions of Sea Street and Ocean Avenue in Hyannis.  The hearing will be held at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, September

26, 2017 in the Town Council Hearing Room at Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis.

This state-funded project is planned to extend from Main Street to the entrance of Keyes Memorial Beach on Ocean Avenue.  The project objectives are to improve pedestrian and bicycle access and overall traffic safety, rehabilitate aging infrastructure, and enhance the streetscape.  The project scope is anticipated to include new ADA-compliant sidewalks on both sides of the road, new or resurfaced pavement, lane widths conducive to shared use with bicycles, improved drainage and lighting, and other streetscape elements such as plantings and benches where feasible.  Construction is planned to start in the spring of 2018 and is anticipated to continue through 2019, with construction breaks between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and over the winter.  The project limits, scope, and schedule are contingent on available funding and other factors.

The hearing will include a presentation providing an overview of existing conditions and potential improvements along this corridor, with opportunities for questions and comments.
