Crews this week worked to take down the last remaining utility poles in Hillsboro, as the town’s $14.3 million traffic calming and pedestrian safety project wraps up. In addition to the installation of a roundabout on each end of town along Rt. 9 to slow traffic, the project also saw crews install sidewalks, retaining walls and parking bays along the road, and bury utility lines. The town is planning a June 18 grand reopening celebration.
