Leetsdale Drive in Denver is part of what the city calls a high injury network. It’s one of 27 streets where more than 50 percent of crashes happen, and it runs right by George Washington High School. Transportation engineering PhD student Lily Lazarraga is researching how to make the area safer for pedestrians. She is a finalist to win a $50,000 grant to work with the city in implementing safety measures.
