Design Funding for Bikeway in North Falmouth Approved

FALMOUTH – The Falmouth Board of Selectmen this month affirmed $694,000 of Community Preservation Committee design funding for the North Falmouth Bikeway Extension.

Falmouth Director of Public Works Raymond Jack said the town plans to make this a path that stretches across multiple communities.

“We intend to work closely with the town of Bourne on this,” said Jack.

“They had been looking at this initiative also for a number of years.”

The path will be just under a mile long and 10 to 12 feet wide. The plan also involves a dirt parking lot.

This is part of an overall project aiming to connect the Cape Cod Canal to Vineyard Sound via a recreational path.

“Primary purpose of this is recreation; I put that down as the primary, it does have an alternate purpose of commuters. The uses predominately are going to be cyclists, pedestrians, hikers, rollerblading, and cross country skiing,” Jack said.

MassDOT is covering the rest of the project’s funds, which costs around $6 million in total.
