Coastal Engineering Co. is Part of Design Team for Pilgrim Monument Funicular

An all-local development team is moving deliberately toward a long-needed solution to a century-old problem — the disconnection between the historic Pilgrim Monument and the bustling life of downtown Provincetown.

Pilgrim Monument Ptown Museum Funicular Sm

The idea of a funicular, an inclined elevator or cable car on rails that would bring visitors from the Bas Relief Park to the landscaped lawn of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM), received a favorable reception at a series of public meetings hosted to hear questions, concerns and ideas from the community. Some questions remain. But overall there is enthusiasm about the plans, and overwhelmingly the input we’ve received has confirmed that the isolation of the monument and the disconnect from the town are problems that bother both locals and tourists. The disconnect causes confusion among visitors and prevents the kind of back-and-forth foot traffic that would greatly benefit not only PMPM but also the shops and restaurants of Provincetown.

The development team that will make this project a reality is coming together. Coastal Engineering Company Inc. of Orleans, landscape architects Hawk Design Inc. of Sandwich and architects Brown, Lindquist, Fenuccio & Raber of Yarmouth Port are all on board. The construction management company, Jay Cashman Inc. of Quincy, is graciously and generously donating its services, a recognition that the monument was in fact built in 1910 by the ancestors of the company’s founder, Jay Cashman.
