The Williamson Highway Department is responsible for the care and maintenance of approximately 47.59 miles of centerline roads that are owned by the municipality. In the winter, we plow the approximately 28.97 miles of county roads. We do not plow state roads.
The department at times will assist other departments in town when they are in need of equipment or additional personnel. We also do in-kind services with Wayne County, other towns in the county, and even the state if needed.
