The Cape Cod Commission held a meeting to discuss design alternatives and hear what community residents and road users – motorists and bicyclists – think. Feedback from the meeting will be shared with local and state agencies to inform future roadway planning efforts.
In 2017 MassDOT installed bike lane symbols, new striping, and associated bicycle signage on Route 6 from Lawrenceville Road in Wellfleet to South Highland Road in North Truro. The project was in response to requests from Outer Cape communities to create bike lanes on the two-lane section of the highway corridor.
The 2016 Outer Cape Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan proposes a separated multi-use path on Route 6 as a long-term primary route through Truro and Provincetown. This fall, the Cape Cod Commission will study bike lane extensions as a short-term/interim strategy/accommodation before full implementation of the proposed off-road multi-use path. Information and comments gathered through community outreach and listening sessions will inform such designs.
A primary objective of the study is to learn how people feel about potential alternatives. Cape Cod Commission staff will present design concepts at an interactive public meeting on October 17, 2018 at the Truro Community Center. A copy of the presentation and a link to a preference survey will be posted on this website after the meeting.
