The Cape Cod Commission and the Town of Bourne will hold a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, February 24, at 6 PM to discuss the development of a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan for the Town of Bourne.
Bourne is seeking to improve the travel experience along its streets through the development of a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan. A “complete street” provides accommodations for all users, including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and persons with disabilities.
With funding provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Town of Bourne has retained the services of the Cape Cod Commission to develop this plan.
The purpose of this study is to explore transportation improvement alternatives that will reduce conflicts, improve traffic flow and incorporate multimodal transportation options in Bourne while furthering the creation of vibrant, pedestrian and bicycle-oriented mixed-use centers throughout the town.
Input gathered from the meeting will help the Cape Cod Commission understand the issues and opportunities relative to safe transportation in Bourne. Based on the information from this meeting, improvements in Bourne will be listed in a prioritization plan that will help the town gain access to state and federal funding.
