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.

The Methuen Rotary project was highlighted in a segment of Methuen Community Television's September 2015 Methuen Now program.

Construction includes:

  • Shift traffic on I-93 to create a work zone on the west side of the bridge; begin to excavate for the west section of the new I-93 bridge over relocated Route 110/113
  • Install drainage system at the existing and new ramps at I-93 northbound and southbound
  • Waterproof and pave the permanent widening at the northbound side of I-93 bridge over Riverside Drive

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.
