Positions: Ning Li, Virginia DOT

NingLiRisingStar

Continuing on where are they now:

Nexus group alumnus Ning Li and Nexus group alumna, Wenling Chen, his wife, both work for Virginia DOT and are proud parents of 7 month old Jay. Ning was just selected by the National Safety Council as a Rising Star of Safety, one of the few in transportation. This is the second major safety award Ning has won.

The reason given was:


“In an effort to develop strategies for reducing Virginia’s roadway departure crashes, Ning identified and addressed a major defect in Virginia’s RD [Roadway Departure] crash data. Through collaboration with national peers, Ning verified the national scope of the defect and brought the issue to the attention of the Federal Highway Administration. As a result, FHWA released an official memorandum in 2009 on a new RD crash definition and criteria. Not only were Ning’s suggestions adopted in the memo, FHWA staff also acknowledged his ‘significant contributions to the important highway safety effort.’”
