Bourne Bridge

The Bourne Bridge in Bourne, Massachusetts carries Route 28 across the Cape Cod Canal, connecting Cape Cod with the rest of Massachusetts. It won the American Institute of Steel Construction's Class "A" Award of Merit as the "Most Beautiful Steel Bridge" in 1934.

Most traffic approaching from the west follows Massachusetts Route 25, which ends at the interchange with US 6/Route 28 just north of the bridge, and provides freeway connections from Interstate 495 and Interstate 195.

There is a sidewalk for pedestrian and bicycle access on the west side of the bridge, the only legal way to walk or pedal onto the part of Cape Cod beyond the canal.

During relatively high winds of 70MPH or above due to bad weather, bridges to the Cape are sometimes closed for safety.
