The following photographs show the construction work at Bridge Creek, near Rte. 6A in West Barnstable, on March 17, 2003.  The culvert under the railroad tracks is being removed and replaced with a larger one.  As the railroad bridge in Buzzards Bay is closed for repairs until June, there are no trains running on the Cape (with the exception of some local switching at Gallo construction in Sagamore) and this culvert project can take place.
