Women In The Works

As we enter construction Year 2 of the Sustainable Infrastructure Plan, we are excited to tell you about everything that we've got 'In The Works' for the year.

We will be repaving major arteries, reconstructing sidewalks, upgrading drinking water and stormwater infrastructure and improving the safety and connectivity of the transportation network. But first ... We want to tell you about some of the people who are doing this work for you -- the Women in the Works! The women we're featuring were themselves inspired by earlier generations of engineers, administrative professionals, planners and public servants. Since it's women's history month, what better time to inspire the next generation than with some women building history right now in Burlington! #WITWbtv
