Here was one of the photos.
To most it is simply a road under construction. To the environmental guy in the audience the client was speaking to it shows to the right we have planted grass on the slope and have measures in place to halt mud from entering drop inlets where the opening is a foot or more above the ground.
To the traffic safety guy it shows we meet the 4 foot buffer space required between work and cars. That the orange barrels are clean, bright and evenly spaced.
To the engineer it shows gravel base is installed and waiting for pavement. That a safety wedge next to pavement is in place. That drop inlets are installed and if you notice a light gray stripe that means an under drain system is installed.
In the distance is a road sign showing what street is near so they get a sense of where the photo was taken. And it shows it was a nice sunny morning based on the shadow angles and blue cloudless sky.
