Route 28 West Sewer Expansion Project – Soil Boring and Sampling

Starting Wednesday, October 11, 2023, between 8:00AM and 4:00 PM, a contractor for the Town of Barnstable Department of Public Works is scheduled to collect soil borings along various Town roads including Falmouth Road, Osterville-West Barnstable Road, Bumps River Road, Oldham Road, and Old East Osterville Road. As a result, localized traffic will be limited to a single-lane alternating, within the vicinity of each drill location. Traffic control will be onsite to assist motorists.

These efforts are in preparation for sewer expansion as part of Phase 1 of the Town’s Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP). To learn more about the CWMP, anticipated sewer expansion, and sewer connection, please visit Barnstable Water Resources at

As always, please slow down and use extreme caution when traveling through road construction areas, and follow posted safety and traffic signs.
