The Department of Public Works, in collaboration with Three Bays Preservation, Massachusetts Audubon and Barnstable County, will begin the dredging operations of the Cotuit Bay Entrance Channel and the western tip of Sampson’s Island this week.

The Town of Barnstable, MA, said in its latest announcement that this phase of the project will widen the existing channel by approximately 130’ and the dredged material will be utilized for beach nourishment purposes on the southern side of the eastern end of the island (Dead Neck Beach) and for a habitat enhancement area.

Weather pending, dredging operations will be on-going Monday through Saturday from 7am to 5pm until completion of this phase.

It is expected that the dredging operations will be completed by January 15, 2019.
