ROAD WORK UPDATES
As always please slow down and use extreme caution when traveling through the road construction areas and follow posted safety signs.

Road Work on Sea Street in Hyannis
Construction activities from December 27th through January 4th are scheduled to include constructing a portion of the shared use path from Keyes Memorial Beach northward, and installing a subsurface stormwater infiltration system on the Town property at 109 Sea Street. Work on the shared use path is expected to include saw cutting the east edge of the road pavement, grading, and placing gravel base. Work at 109 Sea Street is expected to include clearing some trees, excavating soil, installing the infiltration chambers and piping, backfilling and covering the system. During active construction in the roadway there will be lane closures with police details to direct traffic. Traffic may be delayed during lane closures and shoulder work, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes to avoid the construction area. As always, please slow down and use extreme caution when traveling through the road construction areas and follow posted safety and detour signs.

Utility Pole Relocations along Route 149 in Marstons Mills
Verizon is installing new utility poles in some locations along Route 149 between Route 28 and Lovell’s Lane, as well as on Main Street between Route 149 and the former elementary school. After the new poles are installed, Eversource and Verizon will relocate their overhead lines to the new poles and remove the old poles. This work is in preparation for the Town project to improve these sections of roadway. DPW will announce the road construction start date when it is determined. The utility pole relocations are not expected to interfere with traffic, although temporary lane closures with police details might be necessary in some locations.
