The new sidewalks will be (heading west) from Tubman Road to Stony Brook Road and from the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History to Drummer Boy Park; and heading east from Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club to Robin Wood. New crosswalks will be also be added.
Additionally, DOT will be adding drainage, replacing existing frames and grates, and adding leach basins where there are none now. Read the complete report.
