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 ...

Beginning on March 20, 2023 (weather permitting), the Sagamore Bridge will undergo roadway and bridge structural repairs.
Travel will be restricted to one lane in each direction 24 hours/day until the project is completed sometime in May.
Expect delays during peak travel times.
"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.
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
Routes leaving Cape Cod
