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:

  • constructing new signalized intersections east and west of the interchange;
  • constructing two noise barriers; and
