Road Updates

Road Closures, Restrictions, and Updates

The Williams County Highway Department is responsible for closing and restricting roads for construction and safety purposes.

Notifications of these closures are made on the Williams County website, the Williams County Facebook page and through LoadPass. LoadPass also provides text and email notifications by county.

Frost Restrictions

Each spring the North Dakota Department of Transportation sets load restrictions on state roads, known as "frost restrictions," and removes these restrictions when roadbeds are stable enough to carry legal weight traffic without damage. Williams County Highway places these same restrictions on County and Townships roads in alignment with the NDDOT. Frost permits can be purchased from LoadPass.

Effective Monday, 4/12, Williams County will be lifting the Frost Restrictions from all County and Township roads and returning to non-frost law road restrictions.
