Sea Street Streetscape


The Town of Barnstable, with the help of Offshoots, is developing a streetscape develop¬ment plan for Sea Street in Hyannis, MA.

The Town of Barnstable, with the help of Offshoots, Inc, is developing a streetscape develop­ment plan for Sea Street in Hyannis, MA. The goals of the project are to improve pedestrian safety and comfort, vehicular speeds and safety, and flooding concerns, while adding bike lanes to connect to those on Main and South streets and lighting to match Main Street and Bursars Way.

All of these changes will help to create a unique visual appearance that ties into the improve­ments on Main Street and Bursars Way in Hyannis. The project extends from the Intersection of Sea Street and Main Street south to the Branching of Sea Street and Ocean Street. Multiple public meetings have led to a community consensus for improvements by expanding sidewalks to 6’ width on both sides of the street, adding 4’ bike lanes to both sides of the road, replacing standard lighting fixtures with decorative fixtures, planting new street trees and using public lands to address flooding concerns through the implementation of stormwater management.
