Yarmouth Officials Plan for Series of DPW Projects

YARMOUTH – Officials in Yarmouth are in the process of steering several public works projects across the town.

Selectmen were updated earlier this month on plans to replace several bridges, make improvements at numerous intersections, and install components for the town’s new sewer system.

According to Yarmouth Public Works Director Jeff Colby, the work will take place over the course of several years and will need to be coordinated so as to ensure that the same stretches of road do not have to be dug up – and replaced – multiple times.

“There’s local funding options there’s a free cash request we’ve had some of those in the past that have covered some small projects,” explained Colby, “There is also road improvement bonds and a version of that is what the town of Yarmouth did a few years back relative to road maintenance funds.”

Projects included in the endeavor include the $4 million, town-funded replacement of the Parkers River Bridge, the Mass DOT’s $17 million Bass River Bridge replacement project, as well as improvements to Route 28 intersections at Old Main Street, Winslow Gray Road, and Seaview Avenue.
