This year, the dubious honour of Ontario’s worst road goes to Burlington Street East, in Hamilton, Ontario, for the second year in a row. The CBC Hamilton says that particular stretch of pavement has been rising through the ranks in the CAA’s survey for the past few years since it first broke into the top 10 in 2009.
Occupying spots two through four on the CAA’s list are County Road 49 in eastern Ontario’s scenic Prince Edward County; Duckworth Street in Barrie; and Avondale Road in Belleville.
Eglinton Avenue and Dufferin Street in Toronto occupy the fifth and seventh spots, respectively, while Drummond Road and McLeod Road in Niagara Falls are in the sixth and eighth positions.
Position number nine goes to Pelham Road in St. Catharines, and 10th place belongs to Lockhart Road in Innisfil.
The CAA also publishes lists of the worst roads in Manitoba, Atlantic Canada, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
In Manitoba, Empress Street and Sherwin Road in Winnipeg occupy spots one and three with Provincial Road 450 in Boissevain in the middle. Seven of the 10 worst roads in Manitoba were in the ‘Peg.
Saskatchewan’s top three are High Street West in Moose Jaw; Saskatchewan route 47 in Springside and route 350 in Torquay.
The CAA hasn’t yet published results of its surveys of drivers in Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
