1,000 pounds of nails spill onto Danbury road

May 8, 2019

DANBURY - A truck has spilled a load of 1,000 pounds of roofing nails in front of Stanziato’s Restaurant located on Lake Avenue Extension on Wednesday.

Western Connecticut State University posted on Facebook that the nails are scattered on the road near the entrance to the Westside campus.

Roofing nails are very sharp and pointed because they have to go through asphalt shingles and wood.

Running over roofing nails with a vehicle can easily puncture tires.

“Please avoid taking Lake Ave. Extension to get to the Westside campus. Instead, take Kenosia Ave. or approach from Exit 2. The campus remains open and all classes and other activities are continuing.”

Crews are on the scene to clean up the nails.
