MassDOT Unveiling Potential Canal Bridge Designs

Arch design. MassDOT.

BOURNE – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation unveiled potential replacement designs for the Sagamore and Bourne Bridges at a meeting on Tuesday.

Potential designs include an arch similar to existing structure, cable-staying towers at the canal’s edges, and a flat-topped concrete style—each with their own pros and cons. 

Bridge construction is expected to begin in 2027 and finish by 2034. It is estimated to cost about $4 billion dollars provided by the federal government. 

Another public forum will be held Thursday at 7 pm. Public input is still being sought on designs and the project at large. 

Registration for the forum can be completed online here.
