Route 28 Corridor Meeting Nov 2nd.

Concerns Route 28 from Santuit-Newtown Road to Route 130

The Cape Cod Commission and Town of Barnstable staff will host a second public meeting to discuss the Route 28 Cotuit Corridor Study on Wednesday, November 2nd at Cotuit Freedom Hall (976 Main Street, Cotuit) from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The meeting will include a presentation of potential improvements developed based on feedback from the first public meeting, followed by an interactive group discussion. The focus of the meeting will be the gathering of public feedback on the potential improvements for the corridor.

The section of Route 28 from Santuit-Newtown Road to Route 130 was identified as a priority for investigation based on the safety and congestion issues experienced on this section of roadway.

The Cape Cod Commission is in the process of conducting a transportation planning study for the study area with the following study goal:

  • Develop alternatives that will provide safe and convenient access within the study area for all users of the roadway system including pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. Potential improvements seek to improve safety, reduce congestion, and improve the accommodation of all users while remaining in character with the natural and cultural context. 

The potential improvements were developed based on feedback from the first public meeting where members of the public shared what they saw as strengths, issues, and possible improvements for the corridor.

This is the final planned public meeting for this project. A report will be prepared following a review of the feedback from this public meeting and any other comments received from the public.

The latest project information, including a copy of the presentation and notes from the first public meeting, is available on the Route 28 Corridor Study website:< welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
