Cape Rail Trail 134 Overpass


While driving on Rt. 134 in South Dennis on Cape Cod I noticed that they are in the process of building a bike trail overpass as part of the extension of the Cape Rail Trail bike/walking path which currently starts on Rt. 134 in South Dennis and ends in Eastham. The new extension of the Cape Rail trail I believe is scheduled to go along the former railroad line as far as Hyannis. This will be a great alternative to the existing roads for bikers as well as further boosting the tourism appeal for the recreational bikers to get some exercise and get around the Cape without using their car as it does get quite busy on the Cape roads particularly in the Summer. In fact this may even be a faster way to get to Hyannis versus the "bumper to bumper " traffic often found on Rt. 28. I look forward to trying out this bridge as well as the new bike path extension.
