Purple Line Light Rail Construction Project

The Purple Line Light Rail Construction Project, a new 16-mile, 21 station light rail system, is a giant leap forward for modern rail transportation in the Washington Metropolitan Region. Extending from Bethesda to New Carrollton, Maryland, the Purple Line will provide connections with existing transit providers, improving major economic and job center access for commuters. Stokes has proudly supported the public private partnership (P3) design-build (DB) team, as well as the project owner, MDOT MTA on a project that will touch over a thousand properties including the University of Maryland and the prominent Capital Crescent Trail. The outreach portfolio on this project was designed and customized to reach and engage stakeholders from some of the most diverse neighborhoods in Montgomery County to some of the most influential in Prince George’s County. Stokes team is expedient, informed and professional, lessening pressure around the project and creating narratives that focus on the immense economic and cultural benefits of this state-of-the-art light rail service for the region. Stokes is honored to use our exceptional creative and communication skills—to provide innovative public outreach strategies on this multi-billion dollar project.
