Public Meeting – Route 28 Cotuit/Santuit Corridor Study

UPDATE: 11/23/21

The Cape Cod Commission (CCC), in coordination with MassDOT and the Town of Barnstable, have scheduled a Virtual Road Safety Audit (RSA) on Thursday, December 9, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM for the intersection of Route 28 at Santuit-Newtown Road.  Your involvement (or a representative from your agency/department) in the RSA is important and will result in specific recommendations for improved safety at this intersection in the village of Cotuit in the Town of Barnstable.

Please find a copy of the agenda and meeting materials RSA Agenda – Rt 28 at Santuit Newtown Rd Dec_2021 Crash Diagram_Santuit_Newtown_Final SantuitNewtown Crash Data Spreadsheet Cotuit_Route_28_Corridor_Study_Final_Report-February_2017(web_version) Please review the crash data, crash diagram and prompt list ahead of time to become familiar with the crash issues and trends. We also encourage you to visit the intersections ahead of the meeting (in person or via Google Street View) if you are not already familiar with the roadway conditions. Additionally, please review the attached Route 28 Cotuit Corridor Study, dated February 2017, which was previously prepared by the Cape Cod Commission Transportation Staff and includes recommendations for this intersection.

Participants in the RSA will discuss crash experience and potential countermeasures for improving safety.  Following the meeting, a draft and final report will be prepared by the CCC and distributed to the attendees for review and comment. The final report will guide the Town of Barnstable and MassDOT for potential future short- and long-term safety improvements for this intersection.

The meeting will be held virtually on the Zoom platform.  Participants may also dial into the meeting on their phone. See Zoom login details below.
