LUBBOCK, Texas – In the unofficial final results of the November 2 election, the Lubbock roads bond failed to pass. The results were 45.65 percent for and 54.35 percent against.
The proposition was a $174,575,000 general obligation bond for street improvements. After the results came in, Mayor Dan Pope said he respects the decision of the voters. Use the video player above to see more of his comments.
If it would have reached final approval, several sections of 34th Street would be rebuilt, and many thoroughfares would be widened. Roughly $42 million would go to refurbishing Broadway.
The bond would have been paid with a property tax of two cents per $100 of valuation.
