MassDOT Advisory: Amesbury – I-95 South On-Ramp

Upcoming daytime closures of on-ramp from Route 110 west onto I-95 south

AMESBURY – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced there will be temporary daytime closures of the on-ramp from Route 110 westbound onto I-95 southbound in Amesbury on September 12 and September 13, as well as September 16 through September 20.

These temporary on-ramp closures will be implemented each day from 7 a.m., through 3:30 p.m., and will allow crews to safely and effectively conduct construction operations.

During this time, traffic seeking to access I-95 southbound from Route 110 westbound will be detoured to Rabbit Road. Detour signs will be in place directing drivers to take a right turn onto Rabbit Road, left onto Route 286, and then right onto I-95 southbound.

Signs, traffic control devices, variable message boards, and law enforcement details will be used to guide drivers around the work zone. Drivers who are traveling through the impacted areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution. All scheduled work is weather dependent and is subject to change without notice.

This work is being conducted as part of a $3.2 million dollar project to extend the Ghost and Garrison Shared Use Path to fully connect the trail system in Salisbury and Amesbury.

As a resident of the district since childhood, I understand the unique promise our community offers to everyone who lives, works or visits here. As a small business owner, husband and father of two young boys, I also know the challenges that we face in continuing to realize that promise for ourselves and the generation to come.




Education will always be a top priority of mine. As a member of the Joint Committee on Education, I will work with the Administration and leadership to ensure that funding for our schools continues to increase as it has over the last 2 years.
