The Town of Barnstable is implementing Phase 1 of a   30-year sewer expansion project designed to protect the Town’s coastal waters, freshwater ponds and public drinking water resources. Sewer expansion involves multiple construction projects in different areas of Town.  The Barnstable Department of Public Works is working to ensure that residents, businesses and visitors understand the critical need for sewer expansion, and to manage associated construction activity and traffic delays as cost effectively and efficiently as possible.

Construction of the first Phase 1 project, the Strawberry Hill Road Sewer Expansion Project, began in September 2021. The Strawberry Hill Road project will provide sewer services to approximately 300 properties in the village of Centerville. The sewer expansion construction is being coordinated with the Vineyard Wind project, to minimize cost and construction-related disruption to residents and businesses.

Construction on the next Phase 1 project, the Route 28 East Sewer Expansion Project, is scheduled to start in September 2022. The Route 28 East project will allow approximately 90 properties to connect to the municipal sewer system and will install critical infrastructure that will serve as the “backbone” for the remainder of sewer expansion.

What: A public information meeting will be held to discuss the 30-year sewer expansion plan including updates on construction activity and anticipated traffic management plans associated with the Strawberry Hill Road and Route 28 East projects. Staff from the Barnstable Department of Public Works will present project information, followed by an opportunity for questions from meeting participants.

When: Monday, August 15th at 7:00PM  

Where: Barnstable Performing Arts Center at Barnstable High School
744 West Main Street, Hyannis.

The session will be recorded and posted on for later viewing.
