DALLAS - The Tulsa City Council reversed its earlier approval of a 12-year, $2 billion street improvement plan and decided instead to send a five-year, $451.6 million program to the voters in November.

The council on Thursday night split 5 to 4 in favor of the substitute street plan after councilor Dennis Troyer withdrew his support of the 12-year plan that passed on Aug. 21 by an identical vote. Troyer said he would vote for the five-year plan after being deluged with telephone calls and letters from constituents opposed to the lengthier street program.
