WASHINGTON, D.C. — With Election Day coming up Tuesday, StreetsBlog discussed six transportation ballot initiatives to watch in Fla., Ga., Calif., Mo. and Texas.

Meanwhile in Austin Texas, a proposed bond measure would fund a 9.5-mile urban rail route to run past several university campuses. The city is also part of a statewide initiative to use Texas’ “rainy day fund” to pay for highway projects. For the full story, click here.
