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. Construction of the first Phase 1 project, the Strawberry Hill Road Sewer Expansion Project, began in September. Construction on the next Phase 1 project, the Route 28 East Sewer Expansion Project, is scheduled to start in April 2022.

The Route 28 East project will allow approximately 90 properties to connect to the municipal sewer system and will install critical infrastructure needed to proceed with other Phase 1 sewer expansion projects. This project will expand sewer westerly along Route 28 to the intersection of Route 28 and Phinney’s Lane.  The project will install approximately 8,600 linear feet (LF) of new sewers within Route 28, Phinney’s Lane, and West Main Street. The project will construct a new sewer pump station at the Town-owned property located at 1456 Falmouth Road (Route 28), and will install approximately 11,600 LF of sewer force mains from the pump station to the Water Pollution Control Facility. The project will also install 4,300 LF of water main within Route 28, Earle’s Court and Captain Ellis Lane to improve water quality and water pressure.

The public will have an opportunity to learn about the Route 28 East project at an upcoming virtual meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 16th beginning at 7 pm.

Staff from the Barnstable Department of Public Works and consultants will present project information, followed by an opportunity for questions from meeting participants. This informational session is open to the public.
