Arlington County approves $2.4B for capital spending
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The Arlington County Board is planning to spend $2.4 billion on capital improvements over the next 10 years.
The money would be used to build schools, improve water and sewer infrastructure, support Metro improvements and invest in two streetcar lines, on Route 1 and along Columbia Pike.
On Nov. 6, Arlington voters will be asked to approve $153.4 million in general obligation bonds to finance some of the projects.
Residents will be able to approve or deny ballot proposals in each of four categories: parks and recreation, school construction, transportation projects and community infrastructure.
The board unanimously approved the capital improvement plan on Saturday.
