Slow going for those heading to the Cape

If you are planning on driving to Cape Cod this evening, be ready for a slow journey. State Police said nearly all routes onto the Cape are backed up and likely won’t clear up soon.
“It’s slow,” said Trooper Ed Morgan of the Bourne barracks. “Route 25 is backed up seven miles.”
Route 25, which approaches the Bourne Bridge, is backed up to about Exit 2, according to boston.com’s traffic information service. Route 3, which approaches the Sagamore Bridge, is backed up about a mile past Route 6, the service reported.
Morgan said no major crashes had been reported, but a handful of minor crashes added to the congestion. He said he expected the traffic to continue “for the foreseeable future.”Colin A. Young can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
