Background

Hyannis, Massachusetts, is home to the Cape Cod Hospital, Barnstable Municipal Airport, Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority's Hyannis Transportation Center, and the Steamship Authority's ferry operations. In addition, it is the largest commercial hub of Cape Cod. Safe and convenient access into Hyannis is essential to accommodate existing services and development and to accommodate new commercial growth. 

In 2008, the state's MassHighway department completed the "Hyannis Access Study," which highlighted significant vehicle congestion and safety problems for motorists trying to gain access to the downtown Hyannis area. The study focused on the Airport Rotary and the Route 28/Yarmouth Road intersection, and recommended further study of the Yarmouth Road/Willow Street corridor.

In 2010, the Cape Cod Commission, with the help of a task force of transportation professionals, business leaders, and municipal officials, completed the Yarmouth Road Corridor Study. The study concluded with a recommended concept plan for that corridor and its intersection with Route 28.

In 2011, the Commission, again with the help of a task force and representatives from the Town of Barnstable, began to review a previously prepared design of Route 28 from the Airport Rotary to the Barnstable/Yarmouth town line, taking into consideration large-scale development along sections of Route 132 (from the Cape Cod Mall traffic signal to the Airport Rotary). In 2013, the Hyannis Access Study Implementation project resulted in the identification of a preferred long-term solution for this roadway.
