Council approved the environmental assessment for the $91-million, three-phase, plan to widen the Airport Parkway on June 8, despite some dissent from downtown councillors.

Rideau-Rockliffe Coun. Tobi Nussbaum said he was “astonished” that the staff report didn’t establish baseline traffic figures for the future that didn’t include a widening of the road.
