UPDATE: The final phase work on Main Street near the West End Rotary has been put off a day. The work set to begin on Monday, April 11, will now begin on Tuesday, April 12. The work is still expected to take three nights and three days, weather-permitting, according to the Town of Barnstable. The work is now scheduled for April 12-April 15.
The final phase of a Hyannis Main Street water works construction project is slated for completion this week. According to the Town of Barnstable, road work will be done at night and to limit traffic and safety issues.
During the final phase, the contractor will remove the temporary paving, compact and adjust the grade of the newly excavated water pipe trench along the stretch of Main Street from Sea Street to the West End Rotary. Although the construction part of the phase will be done at night, the final, finish coat of asphalt will be applied during the day.
While the work is being done, one lane will remain open to motorists unless the police officer working the detail decides otherwise for safety reasons, according to the town.
If the weather cooperates, the final phase should take three nights and three days, running from Monday, April 11 to Thursday, April 14.
Traffic barrels will be placed on Main Street the day before to block overnight parking in the work area, the town said.
This final phase was originally set to begin April 5, but was postponed due to inclement weather.
When the project is completed, 1,975 feet of water main on Main Street between Sea Street and the West End Rotary will have been replaced and upgraded. The project also included the replacement of valves, hydrants and customer water service.
