CONCORD, Mass. – All travel lanes on the Cape Cod Canal’s Sagamore and Bourne bridges in Bourne, Mass., will be open during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Wednesday, Nov. 26 through Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014, according to officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.
Travel lane restrictions, one lane in each direction – one lane going on Cape and one lane going off Cape –will resume on the Sagamore Bridge on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014, as the contractor team works to complete the $12.3 million bridge painting project. The daily setup is from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will continue to about the end of December when work and cleanup are scheduled to be completed.
Message boards and bridge work alert emails are used to help inform motorists about pending lane restrictions and bridge work. To sign up for bridge work alert emails send an email to CapeCodCanalBridges@usace.army.mil with the subject title “Bridge Work Alerts.” An email alert is sent when there is a major change to the bridge work status or schedule.
