Federal funding to replace the Bourne and Sagamore bridges to Cape Cod was not included in President Donald Trump’s fiscal 2021 budget, nor was it part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ fiscal 2020 work plan.

Trump’s budget, released this week, does include a $12.4 million for ongoing maintenance and operation of the Cape Cod Canal Federal Navigation Project, but none for bridge replacement or repair. Likewise, the Army Corps work plan included $11.9 million for maintenance of the Canal, but excluded money for replacement or repair.


Not sure how much they wanted for 2 new bridges. Could be worse than the Big Dig.

20 Billion would cover the whole Mexican Border Wall.

Fill it in, giant waste of money maintaining it. Make a four lane highway to alleviate the RT3 and 25 traffic and the traffic can clog the cape up more.
Better yet......start a giant advertising campaign extolling the virtues of vacationing in N.H. Maybe even offer to pay the tolls or something so all those folks with NY and Conn license plates will head up there rather than coming here.

well, that's what happens when you have an entire contingent hellbent on throwing you out of office by any means imaginable.

Blame Warren, Markey, JoKe3, Katherine Clark, Ayanna, McGovern, and the rest of the shmucks.
This^^^ Why help the enemy??? These idiots don’t realize how much they f—ked the people of this state because of their blinded political BS. The idiots who vote for these morons should remember this!

Either here or there
Now is the time to punish the democratic socialist/progressive areas of the country and focus infrastructure improvements on those areas where there are hard working, patriotic, constitution-loving, freedom-loving, gun owning folks, who yearn for the republic of the USA to live on.

An enterprising Massatwoshitsian would buy a little land on both sides of the canal and a couple of auto ferries and make a bundle ferrying Teslas back and forth.
Oh, and add off-shore gambling and Wedding Services...

Why should my federal dollars pay for it in the first place?
I think it's considered a Federal Waterway, owned by the Army Corps of Engineers.

I was told once that the reason the canal is toll free is because it is owned by the Army Corps of Engineers.
