The Gateway for the Cape

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

The economic vitality of Cape Cod and the quality of life for people who live, work, and visit these communities is dependent on these bridges. However, they are now nearly 90 years old, functionally obsolete, and no longer meet the needs of the traveling public, which prompted the studies leading to the development of this Program. MassDOT is committed to carrying out this program and ensuring that people throughout the region can continue to safely and reliably reach the places they need to go.

This program is requiring significant coordination with local, state, and federal partners, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who owns the bridges. There are still many important factors under consideration, such as the development of design alternatives, and identifying federal funding opportunities.

The Cape Cod Bridges Program Team needs to understand your interests and concerns, especially as we make plans to address the impact of design and construction on the Cape Cod community and traveling public. Your involvement is key to our success.
