MassDOT representatives met with the Canal Area Regional Traffic Task Force today for the first Task Force Meeting. A review of the proposed overall work timeline and task force mission statement were the first orders of business.
The first Task Force Meeting comes one week after its creation due to the intense interest and need for quick improvements in plans for traffic congestion related to the Canal bridges. MassDOT and the Cape Cod Commission will collect data on the existing traffic conditions on the canal area roadways during December and January so that the data can be used to recommend improvement projects before construction on the Sagamore bridge begins again in the spring.
The proposed task force mission statement: To reduce traffic congestion on the Bourne and Sagamore bridges and the connecting roadways through the implementation of cost-effective transportation improvements that will help support the economic and personal well-being of Cape Cod residents and visitors.
