Town of Barnstable Department of Public Works with their contractor, Robert B. Our Company, and National Grid utility company, are scheduled to perform work in the intersection of South Street and Sea Street beginning September 18, 2019, contingent on weather and other factors. The work is expected to take about six weeks to complete. Intersection closures and partial closures will be intermittent, as needed.
Normal work hours will be between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The work limits will extend up to 400 feet along each approach to the intersection.
The work will include relocating natural gas lines, installing drainage, installing conduits for traffic signals and street lights, installing new traffic signal equipment, and patching the pavement. A new top course of pavement will be placed later in the project.
Businesses and residences along the work zone will remain accessible to traffic throughout the work, subject to detours and police direction. The following detours are planned: 1) eastbound traffic of the West End Rotary will be detoured to North Street, and then travel south on High School Road to east on South Street; 2) eastbound traffic on the two-way section of Main Street east of the rotary will be directed to Potter Avenue southbound, then travel east on Maple Street, and then travel south on Sea Street; 3) southbound traffic at the intersection of Main Street and Sea Street will be detoured westbound toward the aforementioned detours.
During construction operations traffic will be delayed and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes to avoid the construction work. As always, please slow down and use extreme caution when traveling through the road construction areas and detour routes. Follow posted safety and detour signs as well as directions from police officers.
