Methuen Rotary Interchange Project Milestone November 2016_FINALMassDOT has announced a new milestone in the Methuen Rotary Reconstruction Project. The new permanent on-ramp from Route 110/113 Westbound to I-93 Southbound will be open to traffic Monday November 28, weather permitting.

Route 110/113 westbound traffic heading for I-93 Southbound will enter the dedicated on-ramp just west of the new bridge carrying I-93 traffic over Route 110/113.  The temporary signal controlling left turns on to the existing I-93 Southbound on-ramp will be removed from service.  Signage will be installed to direct traffic to the new ramp. Variable message signs will be positioned in advance to alert the public of the upcoming traffic change.

The $66.4 million Methuen Rotary Reconstruction Project is replacing the existing rotary with a partial cloverleaf interchange to improve safety and reduce congestion. For more information, visit the project website.
