National Public Works Week kicks off: Why WithersRavenel is celebrating

Public works professionals play a key part in our everyday lives, but sometimes their contributions can be taken for granted. “The Rhythm of Public Works” is the theme for the American Public Works Association (APWA) 2020 National Public Works Week, running May 17–23. The theme represents how the efforts of public works professionals play a vital role in the heartbeat of communities across the country.

Throughout the week, WithersRavenel will spotlight various aspects of public works. We will celebrate the people who keep our water running, our streets clear and parks and public spaces safe.

WithersRavenel is proud of our contributions in the public works arena. From water and wastewater to stormwater, transportation, parks and more, our engineers and professionals collaborate with North Carolina communities and their employees on a variety of projects every day.
