Survey work on Hyannis Harbor

Town of Barnstable contractors are to conduct surveys in and around Bismore Park Marina and a hydrographic survey in Hyannis Inner Harbor Monday through the end of the month, weather permitting. Normal working hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. The work is not expected to create traffic delays or interfere with marine operations.

These surveys will provide information needed for proposed projects to dredge portions of Hyannis Inner Harbor and to rehabilitate infrastructure at Bismore Park and the Bismore Park Marina. These projects are planned for construction from 2025 and will be presented beforehand in public meetings as a master plan, design and permit progress.

Drivers, mariners and other facility users are advised to slow down and exercise extreme caution when traversing these areas during surveying activities, and to follow posted safety signs and police instructions / signallers.
