This year, we have a project from the City of Seattle. Students will be developing design concepts to solve a critical transportation challenge at the E Marginal Way S / 16th Ave S intersection, which is a key freight facility for the city but also serves a variety of other modes including pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit.  Students will apply their knowledge of standards and consideration the use by applicable modes to prepare a poster board presentation and 30-minute formal presentation on their concepts.
