    Outer Cape Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan - Public Workshop #3 - Potential Primary Route Alternatives

    The following describes the 3 Primary Route Alternatives presented on the November 12, 2015 Workshop Maps.  All descriptions begin at the terminus of the Cape Cod Rail Trail in South Wellfleet and continue northward to Provincetown.

    Primary Alternative A – (Existing rail bed and bike trail alternative)

    Travelling north from South Wellfleet, Alternative A follows the DCR-owned rail bed as a hardened, unpaved surface until its intersection with Old County Road/Old Kings Highway.  It then follows Old Kings Highway as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Cahoon Hollow Road and continues west as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Route 6.  At Route 6 it becomes a separate multi-use path on the east side until Rose Road/Collins Road in Truro.  On Rose and Collins Road it becomes a paved shoulder or bike lane to South Pamet Road and continues west as a paved shoulder or bike lane to Route 6.  At Route 6 it becomes a separate multi-use path on the east side to South Highland Road.  It follows South Highland Road as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Coast Guard Road and continues as a hardened, unpaved surface along the Old King’s Highway connection to the Head of the Meadow bike trail.  Outer Cape Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan - Public Workshop #3 - Potential Primary Route Alternatives - SegmentsAfter following the paved bike trail, the route continues along High Head Road in shared space to Route 6, where it crosses at Stott’s Crossing and continues as a separate multi-use path along the west side of Route 6.  At Snail Road in Provincetown, it travels south to connect with the existing unpaved railroad bed and continues to Howland Road, where it becomes a bike lane or paved shoulder to Route 6.  At Route 6 it becomes a separate multi-use path until Conwell Street, where it follows the proposed on-road shared route down Cemetery Road, Alden Street, Bradford, and Standish to Macmillan Wharf.

    Primary Alternative B – (Scenic local road alternative)

    Travelling east from South Wellfleet, Alternative B takes the scenic Lecount Hollow Road and Ocean View Drive as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Cahoon Hollow Road, where it continues west as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Route 6.  At Route 6 it travels north as a separate multi-use path on the east side to Rose Road/Collins Road in Truro.  On Rose and Collins Road it becomes a paved shoulder or bike lane to South Pamet Road and continues west as a paved shoulder or bike lane to Route 6.  At Route 6 it becomes a separate multi-use path on the east side to South Highland Road.  It follows South Highland Road as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Highland Road and continues as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Route 6A.  The path then follows Route 6A as a bike lane or paved shoulder to Commercial Street in Provincetown, where it continues in shared-space to Macmillan Wharf.

    Primary Alternative C – (Route 6 multi-use path alternative)

    Traveling north from Lecount Hollow Road in South Wellfleet, Alternative C follows Route 6 as a separate multi-use path all the way to Herring Cove beach parking lot in Provincetown.  The path could be on either the east or west side of Route 6, though in Provincetown it would utilize the abandoned Route 6 right-of-way beyond Shank Painter Road to avoid sensitive wetland areas.

  • Potential Primary and Secondary Route Options:

    Map - Primary and Secondary Route Options - Outer Cape Bicycle & Pedestrian Master PlanThe map to the right shows potential primary route options (in blue) and potential secondary route options in pink. Click on the image to see or download a larger version of the map.---->

    The primary route options represent the potential "spine" route that would connect the Cape Cod Trail from its terminus in South Wellfleet to Truro and Provincetown. Secondary route options provide connections from the potential primary routes to destinations or provide a scenic travel way. 

  • Potential route options are numbered by segment as follows: each begins with a letter – W represents Wellfleet route options; T represents Truro route options, and P represents Provincetown route options. Each town option is then coded by segment location: S for south, C for central and N for north; except for Provincetown routes, which are coded E for east and W for west. Route options within each town are numbered, e.g. TC-1 (Truro-Central-1).

    The map also includes a list of primary route options that identifies the locations.

    Workshop participants were asked to identify their preferences for Primary Route Option.

  • PowerPoint Slides of Accommodation Types:
    In addition to primary route options, workshop participants were asked to consider the types of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations they would like to see on the various route segments. The slides below show four general categories and are marked A. Share the Road; B. Minor Separation; C. Full Separation, and P. Pedestrian, followed by examples of each type.
