Here's a public relations problem that can happen when workers do not keep a clean construction site, via WBIR TV:
KNOXVILLE - As construction continues on and around Cumberland Avenue, some people have concerns about construction site cleanliness.
Stray nails and other sharp metal objects spilling into the roadway can lead to tire damage.
WBIR 10News checked out the mess, in a 10Listens investigation.
In an alleyway that's building up with new construction, Chelsey Inman is looking down.
"As of right now, it's a complete disaster," Inman said, holding a handful of nails, screws and other sharp shards of metal. "I'm legally blind in one eye and I can see them well enough to pick up what I can."
