After a year of political wrangling in the state legislature, voters will decide whether to extend Prop 400, a half-cent sales tax that funds transportation projects in Maricopa County.
While the referendum may seem like a foreign issue, whether the bond passes next year will have lasting effects on the thousands of Maricopa residents who travel to work every day on State Route 347.

According to Arizona Department of Transportation statistics, it’s one of the most dangerous in the state.
