Broken Arrow voters are deciding the fate today of a $210-million general obligation bond issue.

If the bond issue is approved, the city says it will fund several projects including the widening of 81st Street between Garnett and Aspen.  The proposed package includes nearly 90 projects.

More than $140-million of that will go to transportation to pay for street expansion among other projects.

The city would also spend money to build another fire station and a meeting center for veterans.

The City of Broken Arrow reminds voters that the drainage bond proposal needs 60 percent approval or higher in order to pass. The other bond issues need 50 percent plus one.

Polls close at 7 p.m.
