CCC Plan for Outer Cape Bike Trail

After extensive review, discussion and feedback in all Outer Cape towns, the Cape Cod Commission has issued its recommendation on the course of the proposed Bike Trail through the Outer Cape towns. Thanks to those of you who have given input over the past year. For Truro the final recommended course will be entirely along Route 6, ultimately using the east side of Route 6 from Wellfleet through Truro until Stodts Crossing at Beach Point, then will shift to the west side of Rt 6 to the Provincetown line. The CCC further recommends reducing Rt 6 from four lanes to two from Beach Point through to the end of State Highway in P’town. The roadwork involved will be staged over time, with the first stage routing bikers out of Wellfleet at Rt 6 to Collins Rd to South Pamet, which is ready to use. The bike path construction along Rt 6 will follow with State participation. Once the full plan is implemented the Collins Road path will be considered a secondary bike trail. That is the plan – now we will see where it goes in policy discussions and allocation of funds by the State.
