Random House Webster's College Dictionary
structures, as roads, dams, or post offices, paid for by government funds for public use.
Origin of public works:
structures (such as highways or schools or bridges or docks) constructed at government expense for public use
Technical projects, often construction or engineering, carried out by the government on behalf of the community.
Public works are a broad category of infrastructure projects, financed and constructed by the government, for recreational, employment, and health and safety uses in the greater community. They include public buildings, transport infrastructure, public spaces, public services, and other, usually long-term, physical assets and facilities. Though often interchangeable with public infrastructure and public capital, public works does not necessarily carry an economic component, thereby being a broader term.
