Bourne Bridge Maintenance Work
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District is conducting critical maintenance work and lane restrictions on the Bourne Bridge spanning the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, Massachusetts.
Beginning Sept. 18, 2023, vehicle travel over the bridge has been reduced from the current two lanes in each direction to a single 12-foot-wide lane in each direction as roadway and bridge structural repairs are conducted. Lane restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day until the project is completed, and police details will be on site when work is being performed to assist with traffic.
Motorists planning to use the Bourne Bridge should expect travel delays likely to occur during the morning and afternoon peak travel periods each day. Repair work and lane restrictions are scheduled to run through late November, weather permitting.
This maintenance work is critical to maintaining the structural integrity of the Bourne Bridge, a vital component to the transportation system of Cape Cod, the Islands and southeastern Massachusetts. Work will include concrete and pavement repairs on the bridge roadway, repair of deteriorated steel supports, maintenance of bridge joints, and repairs to the concrete abutment structures. Work crews will also perform maintenance work on the bridge lighting and drainage systems during this timeframe.
The Sagamore Bridge underwent similar maintenance work in March of this year. Traffic signs and message boards will be used on the Bourne Bridge to help inform motorists about pending lane restrictions and bridge work.
