UW CEE graduate students Jose Machado (SCTL), Gaby Giron (SCTL), and Mayuree Binjolkar (UW Transportation Center) won first place at the 2017 Washington State Institute of Transportation Student Night Competition!  Student teams from local universities presented their proposals for safety and mobility improvements to the Lea Hill Corridor in Auburn, Washington to a panel of city transportation engineers and consultants. In addition to increased safety and mobility (particularly for pedestrians), proposed projects needed to facilitate connectivity with transit and non-motorized transportation, evaluate risks, and estimate costs. Jose, Gaby, and Mayuree's solution included enhanced safety for bikes and pedestrians, as well as a two-way bicycle track along the corridor, to better connect the community with public spaces, schools, and commercial areas without needing to drive.  

Congratulations to Jose, Gaby, and Mayuree!
