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.

The Town Administrator's Advisory Committee on Pedestrian Bicycle Pathway has been a partner in the development of the Bourne Complete Streets Prioritization Plan.

Public Outreach Meeting #1 - February 2021

The first public outreach meeting for the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan was held on February 24, 2021 to discuss what is a complete street on Cape Cod and the process for developing the prioritization plan.

An existing conditions overview of Bourne was presented using a GIS public comment web tool that was prepared for the study and includes features such as sidewalk, crosswalks, activity centers, traffic volumes and bicycle/pedestrian crash data. The presentation concluded with a demonstration of the public comment web tool and an opportunity for attendees to provide general comments and suggestions for future Complete Street projects in Bourne.

Below are links to a copy of the meeting presentation, meeting notes and a recording of the meeting.

Next Steps

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.

A GIS map-based web tool was created to provide project background, display existing features, solicit public comments on locations of future complete streets projects, and share the draft project prioritization list. The tool also provides an opportunity to comment on the draft list through a survey that will be open through December 31, 2021.
