The Cape Cod Canal is an artificial waterway connecting Cape Cod Bay in the north to Buzzard's Bay in the south.
Approximately 7 miles long, the canal traverses the narrow neck of land joining Cape Cod to the state's mainland. Most of its length follows tidal rivers widened to 480 feet and deepened to 32 feet at mean low water, shaving 135 miles off the journey around the Cape.
The waterway is maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and has no toll fees.
It is spanned by the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge and two highway bridges—the Bourne and the Sagamore.
Traffic lights at either end govern the approach of vessels over 65 feet.
