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.

Project to Reach a Series of Milestones Beginning in July

Methuen Rotary Interchange Reconstruction Project reaches a major milestone on Saturday, July 30, when the first new ramp of the reconstructed interchange opens to traffic. The new I-93 northbound on-ramp is located approximately 400 feet east of the current ramp. A new signal will allow traffic from the west on Route 110/113 to safely turn left to the on-ramp. A map of the new traffic configuration in effect July 30 can be found on the Traffic Advisories page.

Opening the new on-ramp is the first of several significant traffic changes that will begin in July as MassDOT’s contractor, E. T. & L. Corp., begins work on Stage 3A of the project. Stage 3A is the stage that will replace the existing Rotary with a new Route 110/113 and begin demolition of the existing Rotary bridges. Noise barrier construction and associated landscaping will also be complete in July.

Upcoming Work - July 2016

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