The MassDOT Highway Division has started one of the most important transportation programs in the history of the region, addressing the aging Sagamore and Bourne bridges and making improvements to the surrounding roadway networks.

There are still many important factors under consideration, such as defining the program's purpose and need and the development of bridge and roadway alternatives.

Your input is important. The Cape Cod Bridges Program Team needs to understand your interests and concerns, especially as they make plans to address the impact of design and construction on commuters and neighboring communities.

MassDOT Highway Division will be addressing the aging Sagamore and Bourne bridges in upcoming Virtual Public Information Meetings that you're invited to attend to learn more about the program scope and ask the program team questions.

Two live, identical virtual public information meetings will be hosted on Tuesday, November 15 and Thursday, November 17, both at 6 p.m. You can register for the meetings online.

You can also sign up to receive program updates and find out more information on the program web site.

Please feel free to extend this meeting invitation to others that may have an interest in attending. In the interim, you use the program's comment form for any questions or concerns.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

New bridges are needed. The Bourne and Sagamore bridges are “functionally obsolete” and well past their lifespan.
