Cape Cod Traffic Reports

Updated: November 19, 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 ...

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.
