obra, noun:
construction site

Apart from its highbrow meaning of artistic work, obra also refers to construction sites and roadworks.

Hemos estado visitando la obra.
We’ve been visiting the construction site.

In the plural, obras refers to construction work, and is something you will often see on signs.

OBRAS
BUILDING UNDER CONSTRUCTION

If you see the same sign on the road, it means ROADWORKS. And you may well come across it on the Internet.
