Public Works Week May 20-26 
“The Power of Public Works” theme for the 2018 National Public Works Week (May 20-26) poster gives voice to the impact the many facets of public works have on modern civilization. From providing clean water to disposing of solid waste, to building roads and bridges or planning for and implementing mass transit, to removing snow on roadways or devising emergency management strategies to meet natural or manmade disasters, public works services determine a society’s quality of life. Let’s thank our public works employees for all that they do. This year’s poster honors the vital contribution public works professionals make every day to communities all across North America, and it invites the public to celebrate their quiet dedication and indispensable influence on our way of life.
