Wow, Saturday was some cold. The wind blowing out of the north, no sun, who would have predicted that, especially with the ocean temperature in the mid 50’s. I visited the EV Expo at the Transportation Center and it was wicked cold. I did get to ride an electric assist bike for the first time and enjoyed it.
Just before I was to send this out, the Town got word that a crew will be making some sidewalk repairs along 6A next week. The work will take place between 6/7 and 6/13. Three small sections will be improved. The addresses are 2110 Main Street, 2390 Main Street, and 2875–2895 Main Street. These may seem like minor work, but it is progress and we are now on the MA Department of Transportation: DOT, radar. DOT is in the process of hiring a designer for the whole sidewalk project.
The other news about the sidewalks is that the DOT has contracted for electronic crossing signs at Harris Meadows. At the same time they are reworking the curb and then they will paint the road. This has been a long time coming and I had to push to get them to do it before summer as they were worried about working on 6A in June. I assured them that the improved safety of the crossing would outweigh any inconvenience for village residents and visitors.
You may have noticed the repaving on Hyannis Road. This was necessary as the Town DPW did so much drainage work along this section that they decided to repave from 6A south to the railroad tracks. There is no more planned work here for now.. The rest of Hyannis Road and Phinney’s Lane still keeps us all awake, but it is minor compared the section of Phinney’s Lane south of Route 132. Construction fatigue is a real thing in the active sewering areas.
Stay in Touch.
