As ballot-counting continues from Tuesday’s election, the gap widens between yes votes and no votes regarding regional transportation.
Proposition 416 is well on its way to approval, which would indicate voters like the countywide planned improvements. That includes the widening of State Route 347 up to the Maricopa County line. Less certain, but still leaning even more toward approval, is Prop 417, the funding mechanism for the Regional Transportation Authority.
With 2,600 votes still waiting to be counted, Prop 416 has nearly 57 percent approval. Prop 417 has almost 51 percent approval, with Yes votes ahead by 705 votes.
Pinal County has 2,600 ballots to yet count.
