One of the major functions of county government is to build and maintain a network of roads and bridges in unincorporated areas of the county. The County Engineer/Road & Bridge Division has that responsibility. Williamson County is responsible for maintaining approximately 1,400 miles of county roads spread over an area of 1,124 square miles. To learn more about what the Road & Bridge Division accomplishes in a year, click here for a fact sheet.
The County Engineer/Road and Bridge Division is also responsible for:
- Floodplain Management
- Enforcing of the development requirements in the Subdivision Regulations
- Inspecting of county and subdivision road construction as well as utility installation in county right-of-way
- Right-of-Way acquisition
Texas counties have not been given general zoning authority by the state legislature, so the County does not deal with most site plans or issue building permits except for health and safety issues handled by the Williamson County and Cities Health District. For more information, please see Documents and Forms or the answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's).
In the event that you need assistance with a plat or development, please call (512) 943-3330 in advance to schedule a meeting with the county engineer, the county floodplain administrator or any member of our development team.
