Methuen Rotary Traffic Change, July 30, 2016MassDOT’s 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 be installed to allow traffic from the west on Route 110/113 to safely turn left to the on-ramp.

New traffic patterns to the I-93 Northbound On-Ramp are effective July 30:

From the east:  Motorists enter new on-ramp 400 feet east of current on-ramp.

From the west:  Motorists exit Rotary and travel east 400 feet to new signalized intersection. Turn left to new on-ramp.

Opening the new on-ramp is the first of several significant traffic changes that will begin in July as Mass

DOT’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. The project is on schedule to meet the spring 2018 completion date.

When possible, ramp openings are scheduled for weekends when traffic volumes are lower to ease the transition from old to new traffic patterns. Variable Message Signs will be positioned on Route 110 and Route 113 east and west of the interchange to alert drivers to the new on-ramp.

Please view a map showing the new configuration. Visit the project website to learn more, sign up for e-mail advisories or contact the project team with questions and concerns.
