Travel Tips

Provincetown and Cape Traffic Report

Traffic is a nightmare after holiday weekends and on Sundays in July and August. Leave in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid back-ups at the bridges. Or better yet, stay an extra night or take the ferry.

For information about traffic to the Cape and Provincetown, get the Cape Cod Traffic Report.

Route 6, which runs the length of Cape Cod, tends to be busiest on the weekends, and especially at the start and end of the weekend. If you must travel on these peak days, try to go against the flow by leaving early in the morning or late at night. 

For information about traffic and weather while you are on the road, call 511 from your cell phone. Run by the state, 511 is available Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on the weekends from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
