Whittier Bridge, August 2015 2As part of MassDOT’s Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project, the Route 110 on-ramp to I-95 North in Amesbury will be closed beginning on Monday, September 21 for approximately five weeks. The 24-hour-a-day/7-day-a-week closure is necessary to demolish and reconstruct the on-ramp to I-95 North over the abandoned railroad just north of Route 110. The detour route for Route 110 east and westbound traffic destined for I-95 North is as follows:

Route 110 East to I-95 North Detour:

  • Continue past the on-ramp and take the first left onto Rabbit Road, continue straight across Route 286 onto Main Street, turn left onto Toll Road, then take a right onto the I-95 North on-ramp.

Route 110 West to I-95 North Detour:

  • Turn right onto Rabbit Road before the on-ramp, continue straight across Route 286 onto Main Street, turn left onto Toll Road, then take a right onto the I-95 North on-ramp.

Signage will be in place indicating the detour route. MassDOT encourages drivers to avoid the area and seek alternate routes to minimize delays. Those traveling through the area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution.

MassDOT’s Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project is replacing the existing bridge with a network tied arch structure. The new bridge will include four travel lanes, a high speed shoulder and a breakdown lane in each direction. Four adjacent bridges are being replaced or reconstructed along a 3.5 mile segment to accommodate a widened Interstate 95 (I-95) from Exit 57 in Newburyport to Exit 59 in Salisbury and a shared use path will facilitate area connections to regional trail systems.

For more information, questions or concerns about the work, please contact Daniel Fielding, MassDOT Legislative Liaison, 857-368-8959 or daniel.fielding2@state.ma.us
