The Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) $66.4 million Methuen Rotary Reconstruction Project is underway! The project will alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety in the vicinity of the rotary. MassDOT, and its contractor, E. T. & L. Corp., are:  

  • replacing the existing rotary with a partial cloverleaf interchange;
  • building or realigning four I-93 on- and off-ramps;
  • building a new I-93 southbound loop on-ramp and I-93 northbound loop off-ramp;
  • realigning Route 110/113;
  • building new signalized intersections east and west of the interchange; and
  • improving bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

Activities to prepare for the start of construction began in May 2014. The four-year project will be constructed in eight stages and include five traffic shifts. Construction will be complete by June 2018. Activities for each stage are outlined in About the Project on the Schedule page. See also the June 2014 public meeting presentation for details about construction staging and traffic management plans.

MassDOT understands that infrastructure construction brings some inconvenience and will minimize impacts to the extent feasible. Timely traffic advisories and construction updates will help drivers and residents plan their travel to minimize delays. Periodic traffic advisories will be sent via email. Construction progress reports will be posted on the Updates page of this site. In addition to email advisories and website updates, MassDOT will keep local and regional media and community officials informed.
