2016 National Public Works Week

Brampton celebrates National Public Works Week (May 16 to May 20, 2016) by raising public awareness of our services and activities related to the maintenance and operations of roads (road construction, snow removal, traffic signs and traffic signals) as well as public parks (pathways, trees and playgrounds). It also recognized the hard work and dedication of public works professionals in our community.
