Public Works Week
Across the nation, the third week in May is set aside to bring attention to the important contributions of DPW professionals to citizens’ daily lives, including the planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our local communities – its infrastructure. DPW professionals are often unsung heroes of society, and this week honors those who serve the public good everyday with dedication.
The Department of Public Works will be celebrating National Public Works Week from Sunday, May 15 to Saturday, May 21, 2022.
This is a time to celebrate the tens of thousands of men and women in the country who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works and to call attention to the importance of public works in community life.
This year’s theme is “Ready and Resilient” and it is meant to showcase the superheroes who lie within each and every public works professional; always ready to serve their communities, and resilient in their abilities.
