February 10, 2017 07:30 AM –The accumulating snow ended around 3:00AM. DPW main road crews are scraping and treating their routes, and then will treat their roads a final time with material during the morning commute. Secondary road crews have cleaned up and pushed back their routes. The vast majority of the crews will be at the 24 hour mark when the above is completed. A limited crew will be leading final clean-up efforts, addressing complaints and preparing for sidewalk snow plowing.

February 9, 2017 8:30 PM – All crews are continuing to plow. It appears that the worst of the snow is behind us. Gusting winds will continue throughout the night. Please continue to stay off the roads if possible.

February 9, 2017 4:30 PM – We are entering the height of the storm with heavy snow, gusting winds up to 50 mph, and limited visibility for the next few hours. The plows are all out, working hard to keep the roads passable. The Barnstable Police Department has requested that the DPW focus their efforts on the hospital and other emergency routes. There are multiple trees and power lines down throughout the Town. If you are able to, please stay off the roads.

February 9, 2017 11:00 AM – Good morning, our second  large storm of the season is at our doorstep. With predictions of over a foot of snow and high winds,  the DPW has mobilized and is pretreating the main roads. The secondary road contractors are being called in, and all trucks should be on the roads by noon. Utility companies stand ready to immediately address areas of lost power. With the predicted intensity of the storm this afternoon, it is likely roads will become snow filled. Please assist the emergency, utility and plow crews by staying off the roads.  If you are an essential worker please take care and refrain from parking on the main streets of Hyannis, Barnstable and Osterville villages. Stay Safe!
