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.

Upcoming Work - April 2016

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:

  • Install catch basins, manholes and pipe at the existing and new ramps at I-93 north- and southbound
  • Install foundations for overhead sign supports
  • Pave sections of Route 110/113 east of the rotary and the new I-93 southbound
    off-ramp

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.
