Overview   of Tisbury - Drainage Improvements on State Highway

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Drainage Improvements on State Highway project in Tisbury, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Drainage Improvements on State Highway project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of drainage and stormwater improvements along State Road, Beach Street, and a portion of Beach Street Extension in Tisbury. The project limits extend approximately 1,200 feet (0.23 miles), beginning at the intersection of State Road and Causeway Road and terminating within Beach Street Extension, just east of the “Five Corners” intersection. The work includes improvements to existing drainage infrastructure, installation of new catch basins and drain manholes, replacement of existing drainage pipes, relocations of existing utilities, and construction of a subsurface infiltration system beneath the municipal parking lot at 21 Beach Street. Roadways within the project limits will require pavement milling and overlay and the municipal parking lot at 21 Beach Street will require full-depth pavement construction and replacement of an existing retaining wall.

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