Cape Cod National Seashore to Host Public Meeting on Two Projects in Provincetown - Moors Road Reconstruction and Herring Cove Beach Bathhouse Replacement
Contact: George E. Price, Jr., Superintendent, 508-771-2144
Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price has announced that he and his staff will host an informational meeting to update the public on two construction projects in Provincetown: reconstruction of Moors Road and the future replacement of the Herring Cove Beach Bathhouse Facility.
The meeting will be held in Larkin Hall at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies Hebert Laboratory Building, 5 Holway Avenue, on Thursday, October 7th, from 5:30 to 7PM.
The Moors Road construction contract, designed in close cooperation with town officials and the public, has been awarded to Classic Site Solutions, the firm that reconstructed the Province Lands Bike Path last year. The project involves full-depth reconstruction of Moors Road from the park boundary at Bradford Street to Herring Cove Beach, as well as creation of a multi-use path on each side of the road to reduce congestion and safety issues along this stretch of the road.
The Herring Cove Bathhouse built by the state in the 1950s has developed serious structural defects, resulting in a partial closure of the building. The park will present the preferred alternative that was developed with public input from a previous meeting on conceptual alternatives. The replacement facility is designed to be moveable so it can be relocated as the shoreline continues to change.
Schedules for both projects will be presented.
