Williamson Road Bridge over Straight Line Fence Creek Closed for Repairs

Clinton, Miss. (January 25, 2019) Following an inspection by Federal Highway Administration bridge engineers on January 25, 2019, the City of Clinton was informed that the Williamson Road bridge over Straight Line Fence Creek approximately ¾ of a mile west of Clinton-Tinnin Road in Clinton has been closed to all traffic.

Bridge closed and detour signs have been placed by Clinton Public Works to prevent use of the bridge by motorists.

Following the most recent inspection it was determined that the bridge was deficient and would need to be closed for repairs.

“We regret the inconvenience this closure will have on our residents and visitors, but the safety of our motorists is the top priority,” added Mayor Fisher.
