FINAL REPORT AVAILABLE: The Bourne Bridge Rotary Study final report is is available for download.
One of the most serious traffic congestion/safety problems on Cape Cod occurs at the Bourne Rotary. Traffic congestion there affects residents of Bourne, visitors to Cape Cod, and emergency response time throughout the Upper Cape (the area that includes the towns of Bourne, Sandwich, Falmouth, and Mashpee). The congestion affects the residents throughout the year and has an adverse effect on the businesses and economic development of the town. Under the 2013 Unified Planning Work Program, the Cape Cod Commission's staff will conduct a transportation planning study for the area with the goal of developing alternatives that will provide safe and convenient access within the study area for all users of the roadway system including pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists.
