Sargent Corporation crews completed an $8.1 million project to improve the appearance of downtown Falmouth by moving all overhead utilities from above ground to underground on a one-mile section of Route 1.   In addition to eliminating overhead wires, the project included new esplanades and landscaped medians, new and wider sidewalks, new pedestrian lights and street lights, new traffic signals, new landscaping, and storm water system improvements to reduce pollution.

The project included:

  • Placement of 5,300 linear feet of primary duct banks
  • 7,000 linear feet of new sidewalks
  • Installation of 4,800 linear feet of storm drain
  • 4,500 linear feet of new granite curbing
  • Removal and resetting of 3,000 linear feet of granite curb
  • Screening and placement of 5,000 cubic yards of loam
  • Installation of 16 bio-filter units
