Williamson Road Bridge over Straight Line Fence Creek Closed for Repairs
Update: June 21, 2019. City officals are waiting on one land owner along Williamson Road to sell a small portion of land for an easement to widen the utility right of way.
Designs and funding for the bridge are complete. The city is at the mercy of the landowner at this point. Once the easement has been acquired, construction will begin.
Clinton, Miss.
