ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska voters were approving a measure to approve nearly a half-billion dollars in bonds for transportation projects statewide.

That's according to early results.

If approved, one of the recipients would be the Port of Anchorage, where an estimated 90 percent of all goods coming to Alaska arrive.

The port expansion project has been beleaguered by cost overruns and construction problems. In fact, a report is expected to be released Friday whether the expansion project can be built as designed.

But that will come three days after voters decide the $453 million transportation bond package. If approved, $50 million would go to the port.
