New Mashpee Rotary - COMMENT NOW to 12-23-19
There will be a New Mashpee Rotary - COMMENT NOW to 12-23-19 ! The Cape Cod Commission (CCC) has had meetings already and is now in the Comment Period for the plans for the New Mashpee Rotary. The comment period ends December 23, 2019.
There appear to be a few "options" that are possible. One just has better painted lines. Another has a "flyover" the center of the rotary. The third makes the center landscape circle smaller and appears to widen the roadway and lanes. You can see the plans for the New Mashpee Rotary online at https://www.capecodcommission.org/resource-library/file/?url=/dept/commission/team/Website_Resources/transportation/Mashpee%20Rotary%20Project-2019/Mashpee%20Rotary_Alternatives%20Presentation%20120519.pdf . (It is a slide presentation so it may load slowly depending on your computer and Internet speed.)
After you've looked at the ideas/changes in store for the Mashpee Rotary Changes ( https://www.capecodcommission.org/our-work/mashpee-rotary ), and read the reasons for the changes, you might wish to make a comment based on your experience and the proposed changes for the Mashpee Rotary. I found it interesting that the Mashpee Rotary is one of the "Top 50 Crash Sites In MA". Aparently, the Mashpee Rotary is ranked #24 for crash sites in MA.
You can look at the data a little more in depth at the Cape Cod Crash Dashboard (https://cccommission.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/9c8d298337be4e08b1706a8d24495170), which I found to be user UN-friendly. A little hint is to look in the lower part of the page for the words Instructions/Map. When you find them, click Map and it becomes a more interactive page. Zooming in and out, or clicking on different intersections, shows lots of colorful dots and info. What they all mean is not easy to find the answer to, unless you click a few more places and teach yourself what the buttons and click points do.
In any case, I also found an interesting explanation of the difference between a Rotary and Roundabout. Comments about the New Mashpee Rotary, or the Changes to the Mashpee Rotary, may be emailed to Colleen Medeiros, Transportation Engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
