Governor Maura Healey has reached a new agreement with the federal government for the replacement of the Cape Cod bridges.

The pact between the Healey administration and the feds replaces a similar agreement reached in 2020.

“This agreement is an important step forward in our efforts to replace the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges. From day one, our administration said we were going to do everything we can to deliver on this project that is critical for the economy of the Cape and our entire state. We’ve been proud to secure millions of dollars in federal funding to move this project forward and are grateful for the partnership of the Biden-Harris administration, our Congressional delegation and the USACE,” said Governor Maura Healey.

“Our administration continues to focus on improving the quality of life for the people who live and work on the Cape, as well as millions of visitors each year. This MOU underscores the collaborative spirit of our approach to this project to help build the economic growth of the Cape Cod and the Islands,” said Lt. Governor Driscoll. 

It requires the state and the Army Corps of Engineers to contribute around a quarter of the over four-billion-dollar total cost towards the replacements.

The agreement calls for the Sagamore Bridge to be replaced before the Bourne Bridge and says the state will take ownership of both bridges when they are complete.
