Ottawa City Council has approved a motion to spend an additional $2.9 million to repair roads and bike paths in the city.

The city is adding $2.5 million to a fund for road resurfacing city-wide, which includes resurfacing of shoulders and bike paths, and $400,000 to the road services budget to repair potholes.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson introduced the motion during Wednesday’s council meeting after saying that the city had received numerous complaints about road conditions due to the freeze-thaw cycle this year.
