Summary of Problems
Congested I‑95 N / I‑93 S interchange. Circuitous route from Washington St. to take I‑93 S.
Four lanes on I‑93 S result in bottleneck delays during peak hours.
Short off-ramp to Montvale Ave. is a crash hot-spot. Collision rate is more than 4 times the state average.
Summary of Solution
A. Revise Existing I-93 South On-Ramp
New access point at the end of Cedar St. removes traffic from congested I‑95 N / I‑93 S weave and traffic on Montvale Ave. destined for I‑93 S.
B. Convert I‑93 S Breakdown Lane to New Travel Lane
Reduces bottleneck delays that can occur in peak hours.
C. Additional Lane Becomes Exit Only Lane
The longer exit lane will increase deceleration length to reduce collisions at the off ramp.
