Ottawa, Ontario – CAA North & East Ontario (CAANEO) has named its Top 20 Worst Ontario Roads list, as voted on by the public. Six roads from CAANEO’s region made the final list for 2010.

“Appreciating the diverse municipal roadways nominated to this year’s list, CAA North & East Ontario is extremely pleased with the results, as it clearly demonstrates the fact that any municipality, regardless of size, can have a road nominated and recognized as being in need of repair,” said Korey Kennedy, manager of public and government affairs for CAANEO. “With a municipal election having been recently conducted in Ontario, CAANEO is hopeful that new and returning municipal politicians will continue to keep their respective municipal infrastructure portfolios at the forefront.”

This year’s top 20 were:

Pelican Falls Road, Municipality of Sioux Lookout
Vermillion Lake Road, Greater Sudbury
Lawrence Avenue, Toronto
Finch Avenue, Toronto
Burlington Street, Hamilton
Dufferin Street, Toronto
Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto
