PROVINCETOWN — While visitors often stand along Bradford Street admiring the Pilgrim Monument, there’s been no easy or obvious way for them to visit, according to K. David Weidner, executive director of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum.
The start of a $5 million project the week of May 18 to build an outdoor, inclined elevator is meant to ease the confusion, Weidner said. The schedule could change based on the ongoing coronavirus situation. In total, construction is expected to take nine months, with the project being completed at the beginning of next year.
“We’re counting on more people visiting our museum and understanding that we actually have a museum,” Weidner said.
