What's Being Done?

MassDOT is reconstructing the I-93 Exit 46 interchange at Routes 110 and 113 in Methuen, replacing the existing rotary with a partial cloverleaf interchange. The project will alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety. Key elements of the project include:

  • building new I-93 southbound on-ramp and off-ramp to a realigned Route 110/113;
  • realigning two existing off-ramps;
  • constructing new signalized intersections east and west of the interchange;
  • constructing two noise barriers; and
  • adding bicycle lanes and sidewalks for improved access.

Upcoming Work - August 2015

Work on I-93 over the rotary and at the new and existing ramp locations continues.

View the Construction Update page for more information on construction activities and lane closures.

Construction includes:

  • Haul soil from the former nursery at 18 Lowell Boulevard for reuse at ramps under construction project-wide
  • Spread topsoil at 18 Lowell Boulevard to prepare for wetland replication
  • Continue with earthwork at ramp areas
  • Continue work on drainage operations at the existing and new ramps at I-93 north and southbound

The contractor has implemented the Stage 2B Temporary Traffic Control Plan. This traffic shift will be in place into spring 2016. View the Traffic Advisories page for details.
