Per Barnstable DPW Director, Daniel W. Santos, P.E. the South Main Street Reconstruction project should begin in earnest next week ( weather dependent, fingers crossed on both hands). Starting with street markings, flagging sign erection and tree removal they plan to work until Memorial Day and have all of the drainage work and base course installation by then. Work will resume after Labor Day for final paving, guard rail installation , signage and striping. This project will effect South Ocean View Ave and Main Street intersection to Oregon Beach and Vineyard Road. More Information
DPW UPDATE REGARDING ROADS
“We will continue to plow throughout tonight until the snow stops and all roads have been plowed and cleaned up. Keep in mind that this will not be accomplished as quickly or as effectively as people are used to due to the continued presence of enormous amounts of snow on the sides of roads as well as the hard pack snow and ice.
Tomorrow (Friday) we intend to treat all secondary roads with a mixture of 2:1, sand:salt; the highest concentration that we have ever applied to secondary roads. The salt in combination with forecast sun and warming temperatures over the next several days should loosen the hard pack up so that we can begin to remove it from the roads. We will continue to salt, monitor, and scrape until the roads are clear”.
