DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County road repair crews took advantage of the recent sunny weather to replace a collapsed culvert in Diboll.

A new culvert has been installed under Pine Valley Road, between the 700 and 800 block.

This was the culvert that collapsed on May 21st, due to the flash flooding.  The excessive floodwaters soaked the road and its underlying gravel and dirt, increasing the weight that bore down on the metal cylinder.

While the road is now drive-able, motorists are warned to use caution, because there is no asphalt topping on that part of the road yet.
