See, Click, Fix: Leaning utility pole now fixed!

Posted: Updated:

The pole in question is on Camp Greene Street in Charlotte. You don't have to be an expert in geometry to know it is not pointing at a 90 degree angle!

"There's a poll down on Camp Greene Street that's almost out the street and I ride by (it) everyday," says the viewer who left us a voicemail about the problem.

It's what prompted See, Click, Fix to investigate.

The damage was significant enough at the base, Duke Energy told us it erected a brand new pole and transferred its lines to it.

But that's when progress seemed to come to a halt.

Wires were crossed on who owned the last set of lines on the damaged pole. Lines that needed to get transferred to the new pole.

Our repeated calls to multiple agencies paid off, we found this out last week through the Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT): "The remaining line on the pole is Time Warner Cable's..." CDOT says Time Warner was removing its lines the next day, and the pole itself would be removed.

"I think it's going to fall any minute and probably hurt or kill somebody," says the concerned viewer.

That won't have to be the worry anymore.  The pole is gone which means problem solved!
