SagamoreMassDOT is conducting the Cape Cod Canal Transportation Study and has scheduled a Public Information meeting as follows:

Thursday, December 1, 7:00pm, Admiral’s Hall at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, 101 Academy Drive, Bourne.

The purpose of this meeting is to provide information on future no-build traffic conditions and examination of alternative development scenarios.

The Cape Cod Canal Transportation Study seeks to identify existing and future multimodal transportation deficiencies and needs around the Cape Cod Canal area in Bourne and Sandwich. The study will entail the development and analysis of a full range of transportation alternatives including highway, interchange, and non-highway improvements, as well as options and design elements that improve access for all modes. The alternatives considered will also include the evaluation of potential alignments for an additional or replacement crossing over the Cape Cod Canal.

The Sagamore and Bourne Bridges, as well as the moveable rail bridge across the Cape Cod Canal, are the primary means of access to and from the mainland for the 15 towns and 215,000 people who live on Cape Cod. The two functionally obsolete highway bridges are 80 years old and require frequent maintenance by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, resulting in lane closures and delays that have a significant impact on emergency access and safety as well as community and economic impact for Cape Cod.
