New Cany, TX (KTRK) – A story with some bite that you can only see on ABC13.
The New Canyon neighborhood has been plagued with the dreaded potholes, only to have them filled with something other than asphalt: tooth decay.
But after a few calls by Eyewitness News, what was there was appropriately replaced.
A viewer who asked not to be identified contacted ABC13 about the mold-infested pits on Friday. He said they’ve been located on Comer Reinhart Road, a road behind New Division, for years.
Levi Heasley lives in Taksim and tells us about the craters that were formed due to the construction.
ABC13 contacted the office of Montgomery County Commissioner 4, Matt Gray. They said they were still deciding if Comer Reinhart was a county road but planned to send a road crew for evaluation.
The ABC13 was picked up as the crew arrived, removed the formwork, and filled the holes with asphalt within an hour of the call.
“It’s an anomaly to dump it in there, but if you have a bunch of extra molding,” Levi Heasley said. He had his doubts about who could.
“For me, that’s kind of obvious,” he explained.
Romanian Forest Police Chief Stephen Carlisle told ABC13 that his department has spoken with a dental professional who owns property that runs along the fence. He didn’t deny dumping, but said the road was also his — something the county has been working to verify.
“The person who had that stuff must have felt it helping, I think,” Carlyle explained.
Gray’s office told ABC13 that the last time they received a complaint about the road was in 2017. This complaint was not about potholes.
