This purpose of this conceptual planning study is to identify existing and future multimodal transportation deficiencies and needs around the Cape Cod Canal area.


The study entails developing and analyzing a range of transportation alternatives in Bourne and Sandwich. These include highway, interchange, and non-highway improvements, as well as options and design elements that improve access and safety for all modes. Additionally, this study includes significant coordination with the US Army Corps of Engineers on its study of the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges, which are under its stewardship and jurisdiction.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Cape Cod Canal Bridges Major Rehabilitation Evaluation Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District is conducting a multiyear Major Rehabilitation Evaluation (MRE) Study of the Bourne and Sagamore Highway Bridges. The bridges span the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, Massachusetts. The purpose of the study is to determine whether major rehabilitation or replacement of either or both bridges will provide the most reliable, fiscally responsible solution for the future. The study will result in a Major Rehabilitation Evaluation Report (MRER), which evaluates the risk and reliability of the structures as well as the economic impacts/benefits of a number of alternatives, including continuation of routine maintenance, major rehabilitation, or bridge replacement.
