Development Team Put In Place For Provincetown Funicular Project

PROVINCETOWN – The highly anticipated Bradford Access Project in Provincetown has taken another major step towards fruition.

The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum announced on Friday the assembly of a team to design and build a funicular, which has been described as a tram on wheels, connecting the PMPM property to Bradford Street.

Monument and museum Executive Director David Weidner said they continue to seek input from the public as the proposal picks up speed.

“We have made amazing progress through the end of 2017 and now into January. On Saturday the 27th, we held a development of community interest public forum co-sponsored with the town,” he said.

Managing the project will be Jay Cashman who has a personal connection to the Monument, having an ancestor who was involved in its 1910 construction. He is donating his Quincy firm’s involvement.

The other team members are all local with the engineering company being from Orleans, the landscape designers from Sandwich and the architects from Yarmouthport.

With the development team now in place, Weidner explained the next steps.

“What we’re going to be doing right now is to enable ourselves to go in front of town boards and the various regulatory committees to get the appropriate permits to build our funicular. That’s the process that we’re into right now,” he said.

The goal of the project is to allow people easy access to the historic PMPM property from the always active downtown area.
