Metheun RotaryMassDOT crews will begin nighttime operations on the Methuen Rotary Reconstruction Project beginning tonight, Monday, August 11 and lasting for approximately three to four months. Temporary lane closures will be implemented on I-93 Northbound and I-93 Southbound to allow for pavement marking application and setting temporary precast barrier to establish a median work zone. Work will proceed from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am Monday through Friday.

Three travel lanes in each direction will be maintained during non-work periods. I-93 Stage 1 work will be completed in the median work zone; future lane shifts will be required to complete the work of the project. The schedule for this major infrastructure project is subject to change without notice.

The Methuen Rotary Reconstruction Project will replace the existing rotary with a partial cloverleaf interchange to improve safety and reduce congestion.  The project includes the following:

• build or realign four I-93 on- and off-ramps
• build a new I-93 southbound loop on-ramp and northbound loop off-ramp
• realign Route 110/113
• build new signalized intersections east and west of the interchange on Route 110/113
• rebuild existing city-owned signalized intersections at Forest Street/North Lowell Street (Route 113) and Burnham Road/Green Street/Haverhill Street (Route 110)
• improve pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.
