The Town of Falmouth 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, the Town of Falmouth 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 Falmouth while furthering the creation of vibrant, pedestrian and bicycle- oriented mixed-use centers throughout the town.
NEW - Public Survey
As part of the ongoing Complete Streets Prioritization Plan efforts in the Town of Falmouth, a new online public survey is available to seek feedback on what types of complete street projects should be prioritized by the town. Based on initial public comment period in January 2021, over 200 potential complete streets projects were identified. The online survey will help further refine what projects are most desirable to be implemented to benefit all users in Falmouth.
Please consider providing your additional feedback, by Friday, July 9, 2021, so the town can move forward with finalizing the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan.

Learn More and Get Involved
A key component for the development of the prioritization plan is public outreach. The first public meeting was held on January 13, 2021, and a second will be scheduled to continue to gather feedback from residents. View a video of the first meeting below.
All are encouraged to review and become familiar with the Project Resources, linked at the bottom of this page, which include previous multi-modal planning and safety studies performed in the Town. You can also review project suggestions as submitted in the public comment tool. Staff are in the process of evaluating these project suggestions and, with insight for the public survey (see below), will work with Town of Falmouth staff to develop a draft priority project list.
