Funding awarded by Mass. Cultural Council will go toward design and construction of a funicular which will carry visitors up the hill from Bradford Street.
Congratulations to the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) on receiving a grant of $200,000 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council! PMPM will use the funds for the design and construction of the inclined elevator that will transport visitors from Bradford Street next to the Bas Relief Park to the PMPM property atop High Pole Hill. The project seeks to improve access to the historic location and to further link it to the commercial district of Provincetown.
“The Mass. Cultural Council grant is an important step in moving the Bradford Access Project forward as we seek to improve access to the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum and deepen our connection to the town,” said Dr. David Weidner, Executive Director. "On behalf of our President, Courtney Hurst, our Chairperson Paul deRuyter, and our Board of Trustees, I thank the Team who helped us pull a most impressive MA Cultural proposal together. Each member of this team did amazing work that I am hopeful will pay our organization big dividends as we make the Bradford Access Project a reality." Coastal Engineering Company is honored to be chosen to design this project along with landscape architects Hawk Design, Inc. of Sandwich, Brown, Lindquist, Fenuccio & Raber of Yarmouthport, Outdoor Engineers of Colorado, Brian Orter Lighting Design of New York, and Jay Cashman, Inc. of Quincy.
