At a time when a lot of other work is on hold, our “road and bridge” crews are still at it. This takes on special meaning this week, the 60th annual National Public Works Week. This year’s theme is “the Rhythm of Public Works,” the symphony of essential services that work in concert to create a great place to live.
Despite all that is going on around us, public works departments have not skipped a beat. Arapahoe County’s Public Works employees have stayed the course either from home or in the field (at a safe distance) to keep up with roadway improvements, to make critical building inspections that ensure safety, to process plans and permits to progress development, and to respond to emergencies and move regional improvement projects forward, all part of the effort to enhance quality of life for the County’s citizens.
