The Town of Cumberland has posted the following:

Beginning Monday, June 20th at 7 AM the first coat of paving will be placed on Route 88 - The Foreside Road. The Paving will begin at the Falmouth Town Line heading North and will end within 2000' of the Yarmouth Town Line.

This coat of paving will level out the imperfections in the current roadway surface (will cover up at the patchwork of repairs to date). It also is referred to as the Shim coat of pavement.
