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 - May 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:

  • Removal of contaminated soil at mitigation area at 18 Lowell Boulevard
  • Work on drainage operations at the existing and proposed ramps at I-93 Northbound and I-93 Southbound
