Adams Morgan Streetscape Project

Pipkin Creative developed and implemented a strategic community engagement plan for DC's Department of Transportation's total renovation of 18th Street from Florida Avenue to Columbia Road NW, impacting 150 businesses and thousands of residents. The 1.5-year project resulted in new roadway, sidewalks, streetlamps, water service lines, gas facilities, underground electrical facilities and street furniture.

Harvard Triangle Project

For this project, Pipkin Creative delivered a public relations and information plan for the major reconstruction of two intersections, roadway, sidewalks, major pedestrian improvements, utilities, retaining wall construction and large scale arbor replacement in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood at Harvard Street and Irving Street.


The project required high-touch engagement with several stakeholder groups who were extremely vocal and active, as well as coordination with the National Park Service.  

DDOT Citywide Improvements

Community outreach and engagement for a dozen locations across Ward 5 and 6 that involved sidewalk replacement and repair and ADA compliant upgrades and electrical utility replacement and improvement.

Rhode Island Ave Pedestrian & Bicycle Bridge

Pipkin Creative managed public information and engagement for the construction of a pedestrian and cyclist bridge that provided a safe connection for the community from the Metropolitan Branch Trail over CSX Railroad tracks and Rhode Island Avenue from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. This was a $9 million project that involved coordination and engagement with CSX Railroad and WMATA.
