Army Corps to Discuss Upcoming Bridge Work, Answer Community Questions

HYANNIS – The Cape Cod community will be looking for answers from the Army Corps of Engineers Tuesday in Hyannis during a public meeting to discuss upcoming construction plans for the Sagamore Bridge.

Work is expected to get underway over the span later this month which will cause a lane closure in each direction for 55 days.

Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority Administrator Tom Cahir said he told the Army Corps officials to expect tough questions.

“I thought by having this forum we could have many stakeholders in the room and not just talk about the lane closures and how long it is going to be, but why is this being done at this time and what are the long-term plans?” Cahir said.

Cahir said he hopes to get some information regarding a current study being conducted by the Army Corps of Engineers on the 80-plus year old bridges.

“We want to make sure that when we have the folks from the Corps in the room that we don’t leave without all the answered that we want answered, answered,” Cahir said.

Cahir said he has heard from residents and business owners recently expressing concerns regarding the lane closures and the future plans.

The meeting is at the Hyannis Transportation Center at 10 a.m.
