LUBBOCK, Texas – A $200 million road bond, which includes funding to widen, expand, or repave 22 miles of streets and roads in Lubbock, passed Tuesday night.
The final unofficial vote was 67.5 percent to 32.5 percent (40,962 to 19,726).
It comes one year after voters rejected a street bond which included Broadway. The current bond left Broadway alone.
The bond will increase the property tax rate by a maximum of 2.6 cents per $100 valuation. That amounts to $16 per year for the average Lubbock homeowner.
