The Town of Bourne is seeking to improve the travel experience for all users of its streets – motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists – through the development of a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan. With funding provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, Bourne has retained the services of the Cape Cod Commission transportation staff to develop this plan. The purpose of this study is to explore transportation improvement alternatives that will reduce conflicts, improve traffic flow and incorporate multi-modal transportation options in Bourne while furthering the creation of vibrant, pedestrian and bicycle oriented mixed-use centers throughout the town.
To learn more about the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program visit the MassDOT Complete Streets Funding Program Portal.
All are encouraged to review and become familiar with the Project Resources, linked at the bottom of this page, which include previous multi-modal planning and safety studies performed in the Town.
The Town Administrator's Advisory Committee on Pedestrian Bicycle Pathway has been a partner in the development of the Bourne Complete Streets Prioritization Plan.
