Share the Vision and Take the Journey
ReThink9 is a comprehensive traffic-calming, pedestrian safety and infrastructure project on Route 9 in historic Hillsboro that will have positive impacts beyond the Town and along the Route 9 corridor. The project will relieve severe congestion for the more than 17,000 daily vehicle trips through Hillsboro and vastly improve vehicular and pedestrian safety. With the installation of modern infrastructure, the project will benefit residents and businesses, and enable expansion of economic opportunity in the hub of a dynamic rural economy. Through its meticulous design and extensive use of context-sensitive material, the project will respect and complement the unique historical authenticity and integrity of Hillsboro, one of the Commonwealth’s best preserved Early-American rural villages.
Join us on our journey to improve safety, protect our rural economy and heritage—and bring modern infrastructure into an important historic region.
Construction officially began on March 4, 2020 and the road through Hillsboro is open! We are currently in Part 2: Roundabout Construction.
From this Spring until late Summer/early Fall, we will have two-way traffic through the Town with flagger operations, culminating in the completion of roundabouts at the eastern and western entrances to Town.
