Public Sector Experience:

Public Outreach & Community Relations.

From grassroots to cyberspace and public meetings to social media, we create synergy between the message, medium, project and stakeholder. Travesky & Associates has worked on many of the nation’s most notable transportation and regional planning projects.

Highways, railways, toll roads. Airports, train stations, military bases. We’ve been in the trenches on such high profile projects as Fort Belvoir’s realignment, Maryland’s Intercounty Connector, Dulles Corridor Rail, and I-495 HOT Lanes. We have worked on public, media and government relations projects of all shapes and sizes.  All projects, big or small, are crucially important for the stakeholders.  We approach each project with professionalism, enthusiasm, and a dedication to strategic communications excellence.
