BOURNE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you were planning on leaving Cape Cod on Monday, you might want to think again. The Labor Day traffic heading out of Cape Cod had drivers wishing they could get out and walk.

Approaching the Sagamore Bridge there was bumper-to-bumper traffic spanning 15 miles at its peak.

"Don't leave the Cape, turn around, go to the beach," James from Provincetown yelled to drivers from a Barnstable rest stop. He was lucky enough to be driving home in the opposite direction.

WBZ's Tim Dunn reported that traffic getting over the Bourne Bridge was just as bad.

"Don't go back till tonight you'll be sitting in traffic, it's from the bridge to Hyannis bumper-to-bumper, I've never seen anything like it," James shouted.

Dunn stopped to talk to some drivers at the rest stop off of Route 6 and Barnstable where he saw the traffic was already slowing down and stopping at points.

"If it was me, I wouldn't be driving today," the manager at the Mobile Gas Station there said. He suggested drivers wait until after dinner to leave, saying there will still be traffic, but he does not think it will be as bad.
