Infrastructure investments in the town of Hillsboro continue to impact its economic well-being, according to Mayor Roger Vance, as he outlined the town’s current projects and plans for the future at the annual State of the Gap breakfast gathering on March 11 at the Old Stone School.

In 2022, the town kicked off a nearly $2 million project to construct three multimodal trails named GapWay, Gaver Mill and Janney Mill, Vance said. It was constructed by Archer Western with Transportation Alternative Grant funds, along with local and county funding. Along with the new sidewalks, the town now has about two miles of pedestrian walkways.
