Route 9 is Now Open to Two-Way Traffic 24/7!


We are pleased to announce the on-time and on-budget re-opening of 24/7, two-way traffic through Hillsboro on Charles Town Pike!

Thanks to the extraordinary collaboration among the Town, our engineers and designers at Volkert, our contractor Archer Western, VDOT, and our funding partners Loudoun County, Northern Virginia Transportation Authority and Virginia Department of Health.

The bold but commonsense decision to build multiple projects concurrently and most safely and efficiently saved many millions of dollars and completed work on the Route 9 project in just 14 months—rather than the projected three to five years.

Our sincerest gratitude, for your patience, cooperation and support of ReThink9, goes out to Hillsboro residents, our Loudoun neighbors and businesses, and regional motorists.

We welcome you and the many thousands of visitors to the Hillsboro-area attractions back to our reclaimed historic “Main Street,” where congestion has been relieved, and pedestrians can safely walk within one of the Commonwealth’s best preserved Early American towns.


While roadway construction on Route 9 is complete, requiring no further Charles Town Pike closures, some landscaping and punch-list items remain, and infrastructure construction on Hillsboro side streets continues. This work includes extensions of Town water, sewer and communications conduit to reach each residence, as well as the installation of a new wastewater treatment package plant. Additionally, slated to begin this summer, is the construction of three multi-modal trails along, and connecting to, Charles Town Pike, which will provide safe pedestrian and cyclist access throughout historic Hillsboro.

KEEP CURRENT AT RETHINK9.COM will continue to provide updates to residents and motorists about any potential impacts to traffic that may occur related to these ongoing projects.
