Low Lying Roads Meeting Scheduled In Chatham

Street flooding in Chatham from a storm in January.

CHATHAM – A new meeting is being scheduled for the Cape Cod Commission’s Low Lying Roads Project.

The Commission and the Woods Hole group are working with all 15 Cape Cod towns, over a three-year period ending this summer, to assess flooding vulnerabilities in the roadway network. Officials say the problem has been caused by a combination of sea level rise and storm surge.

The town of Chatham will host a virtual meeting at 6 p.m. on February 29th after two roads were chosen to be fortified. Alternatives and cost estimates will be discussed for Morris Island Road and Ridgevale Road.
