DALLAS — Gilbert, Ariz., will begin an extensive, multi-year effort to widen streets throughout the Phoenix suburb with next week's competitive sale of $188 million of general obligation bonds.

The sale will include all $85 million of a GO package approved by voters in 2006, and $104 million from a $175 million authorization approved by voters in 2007. Some $10 million of the proceeds from the 2006 bonds will be used to acquire land for a special events center, but the remainder of the money from Tuesday's sale will be devoted to widening several two-lane streets to four-lane thoroughfares.
