Post Labor Day Road Work to Begin Across Cape Cod

HYANNIS – Labor Day has passed and that means road construction projects begin in earnest across Cape Cod.

Several projects get underway this week in Dennis and Barnstable.

Starting Wednesday, MassDOT crews will resurface a section on Route 6 with drainage improvements from the Yarmouth/Dennis town line, or Bass River, to just past exit 9, including the ramps at exits 9A and 9B.

Temporary lane restrictions will be in place from Wednesday through Friday for shoulder work. A detour will be used from September 11 through November 30 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday evening through Friday morning. The Sunday night work will be limited to the eastbound direction only.

MassDOT will continue improvements for the Route 28 and Bearse’s Way intersection in Hyannis beginning Tuesday.

The project includes traffic signal and pedestrian upgrades, widening of roads and building retaining walls and medians.

Traffic will be delayed during work hours and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes. Specific detours will be announced as the project progresses. Work hours are between 6:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Barnstable DPW crews begin road improvement work Wednesday on Mitchell’s Way in Hyannis and Pleasant Pines Avenue in Centerville. Work includes milling of the existing surface, an adjustment of drainage structures and laying new asphalt pavement along the entire length of both roads.

Work will be conducted between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. During work hours the roads will be restricted to one lane and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes. The work is expected to be completed by September 22 if weather cooperates.

Work also begins for improvements on Route 28 at Strawberry Hill Road. The project includes new drainage, new traffic signals, pedestrian improvements and new pavement.

MassDOT crews will work between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.

The majority of the work is expected to be completed by December 1.

Authorities remind motorists to always use extreme caution when traveling through road construction areas and detour routes and follow posted safety and detour signs.
