Williamson County Sheriff Carv

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) will have extra deputies on patrol this weekend beginning Friday night, looking for impaired drivers and others who are violating traffic laws during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

In addition to the holiday weekend, many graduations will take place this weekend at the County Ag Expo Park, including graduation ceremonies for Fairview High School, Independence High School and Page High School

Graduations taking place at the County Ag Expo Park will increase traffic on Peytonsville Road, Goose Creek Bypass and I-65 on Friday evening and all day Saturday. The WCSO urges drivers attending graduations to allow extra time to arrive the Ag Expo Center.

Due to traffic congestion and construction earlier this week, several Rutherford County students were late to their graduation at the Ag Park.

If you are not attending graduation events, the WCSO advises drivers to take alternate routes. For a list of local graduation days and times, click HERE.

Drive safely and responsibly during this eventful weekend.
