Sagamore Bridge work frays tempers, hurts shops

Repairs to the aging Sagamore Bridge during the spring have slowed traffic leaving Cape Cod to a crawl most nights and backed it up for miles on Sundays, culminating in a Mother’s Day morass when the stalled line of cars stretched past multiple exits on Route 6 and triggered all-day gridlock on nearby Route 6A.

“Whoever conceived of this plan should be fired,’’ said Anne Kilguss, a Boston social worker and psychotherapist with a second home in Orleans. “If I were a tourist and I was caught up in that thing on Sunday, I would never go to the Cape again.’’
