MassDOT Schedules Intersection Improvements at Falmouth Road (Route 28)
at Osterville West Barnstable Road

 Construction operations will begin on September 5, 2019, and will continue through to April 2021

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced it will be conducting intersection improvements at Falmouth Road (Route 28) at Osterville/West Barnstable Road beginning on Thursday, September 5, 2019 and continuing through to April 2021.  The work is scheduled to occur weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

This work is necessary to allow crews to conduct the following construction operations: redesign exclusive left lane turns; improve bicycle and pedestrian accommodations; install new traffic signal equipment, new pavement markings and signs; mill and resurface the roadway; construct sidewalks and driveways and ADA compliant wheelchair ramps; improve drainage; relocate utility poles; and install granite curbing, loam and seeding.

The initial work scheduled is to be completed in four phases to allow access to local businesses for both vehicles and pedestrians. Traffic control measures will include required signage, channeling devices for lane shifts and alternating one-way traffic as required.  Police details and flaggers will be used as needed. Drivers who are traveling through the affected areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution.

All scheduled work is weather dependent and/or may be impacted due to an emergency situation.
