Cape Cod Traffic Reports

Updated: September 11, 2023

Looking for a reliable Cape Cod traffic report - one you can count on to help you avoid tie-ups getting on, off, and around the Cape?

Here are my go-to sources for up-to-date information about travel conditions on our area's roadways ...

* Bourne Bridge Work *
September, October & November 2023

Beginning on September 18, 2023 (weather permitting), the Bourne Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal will undergo several months of maintenance and repair work.

During this time, vehicle traffic on the bridge will be restricted to one, 12-foot-wide lane in each direction. These lane restrictions will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until the project is finished.

If everything goes according to plan, the work will be completed and all travel lanes re-opened sometime in November.

Traffic Updates on the Radio

"Radio?", you say. Yes, the old-fashioned way of getting a traffic report still works in the digital age! ;-)

For regional traffic reports, I like Boston radio station WBZ 1030-AM for their "Traffic on The 3s". (Every ten minutes, e.g. 10:03, 10:13, 10:23, 10:33, etc.)

1030-AM's reports cover all the major roads leading to Cape Cod from Boston and the North Shore, as well as from Western and Central Massachusetts.

That includes: the Massachusetts Turnpike (Rt. 90), I-93, I-495, Rt. 3, Rt. 25, and the Bourne and Sagamore bridges.

For local road and bridge traffic conditions here on the Cape, we tune to WQRC 99.9-FM, a Hyannis-based radio station, for hourly (in-season) traffic reports.

Road Condition Reports by Phone

From inside Massachusetts, dial 511 on your mobile device.

From outside Massachusetts, dial (508) 499-5511.

Once connected, say "road reports". Then follow the prompts to hear road reports for the route number(s) you'll be traveling:

Routes coming onto Cape Cod

  • Coming from Boston: US-3 or 3A.

  • Coming from Worcester/Mass. Pike: I-90 and I-495.

  • Coming from Providence: I-195 and Route 25.

Routes leaving Cape Cod

  • Leaving from Falmouth or Mashpee: Route 28.

  • Leaving from other towns: Route 6 or 6A.
