National Public Works Week

National Public Works Week is May 19 - 25, 2024!

Since 1960, The American Public Works Association has sponsored National Public Works Week. Across North America, Public Works Departments use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing, and operating infrastructure at the heart of our local communities to improve everyday quality of life. 

Stay tuned for planned activities for 2024!
