Overview of Dennis/Yarmouth - Route 28 over Bass River bridge replacement, Main Street intersection improvements

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed BRIDGE REPLACEMENT, D-07-004=Y-01-003, ROUTE 28 OVER BASS RIVER INCLUDING INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS AT MAIN STREET (ROUTE 28)/NORTH MAIN STREET/OLD MAIN STREET project in Dennis and Yarmouth, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed BRIDGE REPLACEMENT, D-07-004=Y-01-003, ROUTE 28 OVER BASS RIVER INCLUDING INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS AT MAIN STREET (ROUTE 28)/NORTH MAIN STREET/OLD MAIN STREET project.  All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project will replace Bridge D-O7-004/Y-01-003 which carries Route 28 over the Bass River between the towns of Dennis and Yarmouth. The new structure will include two travel lanes in each direction, shoulders, a sidewalk on the northern side of the bridge, and a shared-use path on the southern side of the bridge. The current design also proposes ornamental light fixtures and railings on each side of the bridge. When complete, the new bridge will provide safe and comfortable multi-modal access across the Bass River. The bridge will be demolished and reconstructed one side at a time, with two lanes of traffic maintained during construction. This project will be completed in coordination with the intersection improvements at Main Street (Route 28) at North Main Street and Old Main Street, in Yarmouth. The intersection improvement project will improve traffic visibility, improve road configurations, drainage, ADA and signage compliance, and pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
