DALLAS — Arkansas will be able to repair and upgrade more than 400 miles of Interstate highway with proceeds from $575 million of Garvee bonds being decided by voters on Tuesday, up from earlier estimates of 300 miles.

Voters are being asked to extend a program originally approved in 1999 that would allow the state to issue another $575 million of 12-year bonds supported by federal highway grants and an existing diesel fuel tax of 4 cents per gallon.
