State House Supports Funding for Sandwich, Barnstable Infrastructure

BARNSTABLE – Lawmakers in the State House of Representatives have supported legislation that would earmark funding for local projects in Sandwich and Barnstable. 

The bill is a 5$ billion pack for statewide infrastructure projects. 

State Representative for the 5th Barnstable District Steven Xiarhos was among the lawmakers who secured the initial passage.

$300,000 would be used for the sandwich department of public works for Route 130 and Quaker Meeting House Road intersection pedestrian safety improvements. 

Another $75,000 would go towards the purchase of a generator for the West Barnstable Community Center, which doubles as an emergency shelter during storms. 

State Representative for the 5th Barnstable District Steven Xiarhos was among the lawmakers who secured the initial passage of the bill.

“This money is important as a matter of public safety for those who travel through this intersection on a regular basis, and particularly for pedestrian traffic,” said Xiarhos. 

The bill has moved to the state senate for consideration.
