Montgomery County Precinct 4 is responsible for over 850 linear miles of roadway, 1542 linear miles of roadside ditches, and 36 bridges spread across 316 square miles of area. Roadway responsibilities do NOT include any State Highways or areas within incorporated city boundaries. State Highways and Farm to Market Roads are maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation. Their phone number is (936) 538-3350 and should be called for service requests on State Highways and Farm to Market Roads. Please contact your local city hall for the incorporated area your request lies within.

Once our office receives your request for service, a work order will be completed then forwarded to a supervisor who will inspect the area to determine what action can be taken for repairs. This procedure will be handled as quickly and efficiently as possible by our precinct offices.
Our mowers move from street to street throughout Precinct 4. If your street gets missed or there is any other problem with a mower, you can send in a request and the supervisor will contact you to discuss your concern or request.
Culvert Setting Requests
Please mark ditch area from end to end where culvert is to be set : 20 foot minimum / 40 foot maximum. After request is received by our offices, a supervisor will inspect marked area to determine diameter of culvert needed for requested entrance onto property and for drainage plans. Shortly after inspection, the supervisor will call to notify property owner the diameter of culvert required for installation. Culvert purchase (corrugated plastic or concrete) is the responsibility of the property owner, as the County is unable to provide. Supervisor will also notify property owner of the quantity and cost of stabilized fill needed to cover each pipe in the ditch only. Any additional quantities of stabilized fill cannot be purchased through our office. Before any further work commences, payment for stabilized fill should be hand delivered by cash – exact change only, check or money order (Sorry, no credit cards accepted) to our precinct office at:
23628 Roberts Road New Caney, Texas 77357

After payment is received, culverts are set after a minimum of four business days (after line locates have been completed AND weather permitting).
