How to Get Here

106 Western Avenue is located SW of downtown Essex. About a mile after turning off Route 133 onto Route 22 or Western Avenue, you will see a sign on your left for Paul Russell and Company. (If you come upon the Essex Building Center on your left, go back.) The entryway passes over a small stream. Our office entrance is around the far right end of the building complex, at the top of a small rise.

TRUCKS:

Our loading dock is the one at the far right of the building complex, just before the slight rise. All trucks over 20' should stay on the lower level as there is no turn-around space up the rise.


PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES:

MAJOR AIRPORTS:

The most convenient access to us is from Logan International Airport in Boston, MA. Drive time from Boston's Logan International Airport is about 1 hour.

Alternatively, there is the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, NH. Drive time from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is about 1.5 hours.

FROM BOSTON'S LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:

Drive time from Boston's Logan International Airport is about 1 hour. Follow signs for Route 1A North, then Route 60 North, then Route 1 North, then I-95 North. From I-95 North take Exit 45 and follow signs for Route 128 North (towards Gloucester).

Follow Route 128 NORTH to Exit 15, labeled "Manchester/Essex". [Note: Massachusetts, infamous for their roadway wisdom, has two exits numbered '15' on Rte. 128/I-95. One is south of Boston. Make sure your Exit 15 is NORTH of Mass Turnpike/I-90.]

We are located less than 5 miles from Route 128. At Exit 15, turn left at the stop sign, crossing over Rte. 128 heading North towards Essex. Follow School Street/Southern Avenue through the countryside for about 5 minutes. At the stop sign turn left (West) onto Route 133. Drive approximately a half-mile down Main Street (past restaurants and antique shops). Leaving the Village Restaurant on your left, turn left (SW) onto Route 22/Martin Street.

Less than a mile along Rte. 22, just after Western Avenue merges in from the right, you will see on your left a sign for 106 Western Avenue/Paul Russell and Company. (If you come upon the Essex Building Center on your left, go back.) The entryway passes over a small stream. Our office entrance is around the far right end of the building complex, at the top of a small rise.
