Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT)

In a multi-tiered rollout, Beaman Inc. was entrusted to develop a holistic campaign approach for the Dan Ryan Expressway Reconstruction project in 2004. On top of leading media relations, the team was charged with developing marketing materials, media planning and buying, community relations, and corporate engagement events, and handling crisis management.

Spanning 24 months, the complex project included partnerships with CDOT, PACE, CTA, and METRA. The Beaman Inc. team worked with these prestigious partners to educate and engage stakeholders and the public to establish transparency; to build trust, awareness, and business opportunities; to ensure safety; and to share progress of the project.

Due to the success of our efforts on the Dan Ryan project, we were awarded another project by IDOT, Chicago High-Speed Rail System.

After the State of Illinois received $1.25 million toward completing an Environmental Impact Study on a high-speed rail service between Chicago and St. Louis. Our team was happy to bring our media relations, media buying and planning, and community engagement expertise to the table.
