Driving Directions to USGS, 384 Woods Hole Rd. Woods Hole, MA
From Boston (Logan Airport):
From the airport take the Ted Williams tunnel (I-90). Take exit 24 toward I-93. Follow signs to the Southeast Expressway, Route 3 (south). Stay on the Expressway untill the Expressway forks
in two ramps.
Two equal routes, eastern or western, from the Expressway to Cape
Cod: The time difference to Falmouth between these two routes is
almost nil; both are Highway all the way; choose what's convenient;
don't fret traffic pressure to cross lanes if you find yourself
on one side or the other on the Southeast Expressway.
Eastern route, take the Left exit from the Expressway:
Follow signs for Cape Cod; take Route 3 south about 43 miles. Cross
the Sagamore Bridge, take the first exit shortly after crossing
the bridge, and follow signs for Route 6 west, Falmouth and Route
28. Travel about 4 miles southwesterly along the Cape Cod Canal
until you reach the rotary at the the Bourne Bridge. Three quarters
of the way round the rotary, bear right and follow Route 28 south
toward Falmouth and Woods Hole.
Western route, take the right fork:
Just follow the road, Route 128 north (actually west). Within about
3 miles take a left exit to Route 24 south. At about 18 miles, be
alert for a Burger-King restaurant on the right and signs for Cape
Cod. Exit right to Route 25 south (same as Route 495 east). Follow
the road about 28 miles to the Bourne Bridge. Across the bridge,
halfway round the rotary, pick up Route 28 south toward Falmouth
and Woods Hole.
From Providence, Rhode Island, T.F. Greene airport:
Take Route 95 north from the airport into Providence. Follow the
signs for Cape Cod on to Route 195 east. Follow Route 195 to Route
25 south (which is continuous with Route 495). Follow signs for
Cape Cod. Route 25 crosses the Bourne Bridge. Across the Bourne
Bridge, pick up Route 28 south, to Falmouth and Woods Hole.
As Route 28 enters the village of Falmouth it narrows to two lanes.
Continue south along Route 28 about a mile, through one traffic
light. Within less than a mile from the traffic light bear right
by a Gulf station onto Woods Hole Road. Drive two and one-half (2.5)
miles to the Quissett Laboratories, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
on the left.
The USGS Woods Hole Science Center occupies the first two buildings
you will see, on the right. Reception desk is in the Hedwig trailer,
the first of the two trailers on the right.
