Texarkana, Arkansas voters have reportedly passed a bond aimed at fixing roads across the city.
In a special election held Tuesday, voters approved of refinancing an existing bond to generate between $9 million and $10 million dedicated to road and drainage repair.
The issue passed by a "landslide," by about a 78 to 22 percent margin, according to City Manager Harold Boldt.
Mayor Wayne Smith told KTAL News last week making improvements to the roads were necessary to attract additional businesses to the city.
City officials have not decided which roads will see repairs.
