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 Massachusetts Department of Transportation announces that a nighttime operation will occur on the overnight shift of Friday June 26, 2015. Please see the Traffic Advisories page for the full advisory.
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.
- Begin installation of Noise Wall foundations at Cherry Hill Circle and Noyes Street
- Begin installation of retaining wall for new I-93 on-ramp and off-ramp in northwest quadrant near Valley Office Park
- Continue work for permanent widening of I-93 at the Merrimack River Bridge over Riverside Drive north and southbound
At the end of June, the contractor will implement the Stage 2B Temporary Traffic Control Plan, which entails moving I-93 northbound traffic to the east to create a center work zone between I-93 north and southbound. This traffic shift will be in place into spring 2016. View the Traffic Advisories page for details.
