A vote on a proposed $27.65 million bond ordinance that would pave the way for a massive six-year road maintenance project is set for Tuesday. 

The referendum is scheduled for 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. All districts will vote at Center 375, located at 375 Hartford Turnpike - Route 30. 

The plan is to fix more than 200 roads from a quick seal to complete reconstruction.
