Public comment is being accepted through today for the Cape Cod Commission’s Bourne Complete Streets project.
Data will help refine draft priority projects for Bourne.
A Complete Street provides accommodations for all users including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and persons with disabilities. The Town of Bourne is currently participating in the MassDOT Complete Streets program and has retained the services of the Cape Cod Commission to develop the prioritization 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.
More than 100 potential Complete Streets projects were identified through the initial public comment period in February and March 2021. The online survey for the Bourne Complete Streets Prioritization Plan will help further refine the draft prioritization plan and projects that were presented at a public meeting Dec. 15th held by the Cape Cod Commission and Town of Bourne.
The online survey can be found here: https://www.
Guided by the input from public meetings and in conjunction with the Town of Bourne, Cape Cod Commission staff will prepare a final report and the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan. The prioritization plan will be submitted to MassDOT as part of the town’s ongoing participation in their Complete Streets Program. Approved projects are eligible for up to $400,000 in construction funding from MassDOT.
Feedback can be submitted through Friday, Dec. 31, 2021 so the town can move forward with finalizing the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan.
