Interstate 95 NB Lane Expansion

Proposed I-95 Northbound Lane Expansion

Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MADOT) is beginning planning stages for a proposed project to add a northbound lane on I-95 between the I-93 interchange and the North Avenue Wakefield exit.  Currently I-95 drops from 4 lanes to 3 lanes at the I-93 interchange.  This project would use existing right-of-way to add 1 northbound lane between these points, moving the lane drop to North Avenue in Wakefield.  The project as currently proposed will use existing right-of-way (ROW) to use existing breakdown lanes and in some places widen pavement to make space for the new travel lane.

MADOT  held a project briefing meeting with staff from the affected communities of Woburn, Stoneham, Wakefield, and Reading in early May, 2024.

See below for a map of the proposed project location.  More information will be provided here, as the project develops.
