Project Overview

The Mashpee Rotary is a five-leg, major regional transportation node with the intersections of Route 28, Route 151, Great Neck Road North, and Great Neck Road South. The Mashpee Rotary has been identified as a priority for investigation. The rotary is often congested, particularly in the summer months. Along the rotary and its approaches, congestion is a barrier to reliable inter- regional access between the towns of Falmouth and Mashpee to Barnstable and other towns on the eastern portions of Cape Cod. Residents and visitors navigating the rotary may be connecting to various destinations including Hyannis, North Falmouth, New Seabury, nearby retail and community destinations or the limited access highway, Route 6. There are prominent safety concerns in addition to the congestion issues. This study will serve as a continuation of the previous Route 28 study in Eastern Mashpee that included the Route 130/Route 28 intersection through the Orchard Road/Route 28 intersection.

Also of key concern is accommodation for all road users including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. This is a heavily used corridor for non- motorized users looking to access their jobs and retail destinations from their neighborhoods.

The Mashpee Rotary is also identified as a high crash location according to the MassDOT ‘Top High Crash Intersection Locations’ portal. A review of the “Barnstable County High Crash Location” (Cape Cod Commission, 2014) lists the Mashpee Rotary as a top 50 crash location for several criteria:

  • Number of crashes – Rank #24 (28 crashes)
  • Equivalent Property Damage Only – Rank #25 (EPDO* 56)
*Equivalent Property Damage Only (EPDO) calculation multiplies 1 times the number of Property Damage Only crashes, 5 times Injury Crashes, and 10 times Fatal Crashes. To explore crash data for the Mashpee Rotary and other locations on Cape Cod view the Cape Cod Crash Dashboard.
 

Public Participation Goals

The goals of the public participation plan are as follows:
  • Gather input from community stakeholders and the public to establish a vision for the corridor
  • Solicit feedback of potential alternatives

Coordination Meetings

As key points in the project, coordination meeting will be held with CCC, Town, MassDOT, and CCRTA staff. Coordination with the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and other interested parties will also occur at key points in the project.
 

Public Meeting - Listening Session 

Public Meeting - Review of Concepts

The Commission staff presented conceptual design plans for review by the public at meeting on December 5. The presentation for those meetings, including the potential improvement concepts, can be found below.
Commission staff will incorporated feedback from the public into refined alternatives presented in the final report.

 

Final Report

Below are links to final report documenting the study and its recommendations. Thank you to everyone who participated in the development of this document.

The Cape Cod Commission is currently coordinating with the Town of Mashpee and MassDOT to initiate the next steps for a future rotary retrofit and shared use path project as part of the MassDOT Project Need Form process.
