Supporting Cardno, Inc., QCA is providing resident compliance and administrative support to close out the Florida Department of Transportation's I-4 / Selmon Expressway Connector project. This elevated roadway connects two major east-west corridors and has dramatically improved the movement of people and goods to Port Tampa Bay. QCA's Leta Reale continues to assist in resident compliance tasks, managing electronic documents, organizing files and budgeting for office supplies. Needless to say, Leta plays an important role in the success of this project.

"Working on the I-4 Selmon Expressway Connector project has been a great experience," shared Leta. "It is wonderful to work with, and be part of a team with a diverse group of firms that worked together to complete a project of this magnitude."

This new roadway provides exclusive truck lanes for direct access to Port Tampa Bay, removing heavy truck traffic from local roads in Ybor City. Along with its commercial benefits, this project delivers an additional hurricane evacuation route and increased mobility for emergency response vehicles.

It has been a privilege to serve you on this project, Cardno!

As a long-time, active participant of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Leta Reale is engaged in her community. She has been a mentor to 12-year-old Katherine for eight years and continues to find the experience rewarding. Katherine will be a sophomore starting the fall term at University of North Florida and Leta continues to support her through the college years. Leta was awarded Big Brother Big Sister of the Year 2013 for being successful in her long term-match and friend with Katherine.

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has provided children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

"I strongly believe that without Big Brothers Big Sisters, Katherine may have become one of those students that would not have graduated high school. As a future college graduate, Katherine will now have the opportunity for a successful career. I am so proud of her," shared Leta.
