Come December, Baton Rouge voters will decide the fate of a plan offered up by Mayor Sharon Weston Broome to improve the city's roadways.

The Metro Council voted in favor of the ballot issue Wednesday.

Broome expects nearly a billion dollars will be raised to fund traffic upgrades through a 30-year half-cent sales tax.
