Heavy equipment is back on the scene — and a metal plate on the way, a reader tells us — at the corner of White Oak Dr. and Beauchamp in Woodland Heights, adjacent to White Oak Bayou, where a hole suddenly appeared in freshly spread asphalt just hours after the street was resurfaced yesterday.
“The super new shiny paving job on White Oak Drive lasted exactly half a day,” a reader tells Swamplot. “A manhole-sized sinkhole opened up right as the steamrollers were doing their final compaction trip. Apparently there is a void space under the concrete. According to contractors onsite, the void is at least three or four feet deep.” The problem appears to be an erosion issue connected to the storm sewer.
