Due to the sheer amount of work required (there are over 500 roads in the Town of Eastham, some with multiple intersections) and our limited staff level, this will be a multi-year process so please be patient with us as we begin installing the new signs. In the meantime, please contact the Department of Public Works office by calling 774-801-0520 or emailing Public Works if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support of the Eastham DPW!

Yes. The goal is to eventually replace existing non-compliant Street Name signs, and install new ones, at intersecting roadways.
The signs will meet Federal standards by using a combination of white lower case letters, with a capital initial letter, on a green background. All signs will meet the standards for retroreflectivity and will include supplementary information indicating "Private Ways" and "Dead End" on the right side corners.
If your Street Name sign meets the previously described format, it will remain in place. If the sign does not meet the format above, and it also resembles a Street Name sign or is using an outdated format, then it will be replaced with a new one.
Additionally, a lot of folks have placed "decorative" signs that do not resemble Street Name signs at various intersections. When this is the case, we will not remove those existing signs and instead just place the new compliant signs alongside them. Here is an example of some existing signs that will be complemented by those installed by our department:
