Toronto, Ontario – Online voting is now open to determine the best and worst roads in Ontario, in CAA South Central’s eighth annual Worst Road campaign.
The campaign asks drivers to name the worst roads for potholes, as well as bridges and highways in desperate need of repair. For the first time, the campaign is also looking for the best roads, asking drivers to name recently-paved, resurfaced roads that are free of cracks and utility cuts.

Last year, when almost 10,000 votes were cast in the campaign, Steeles Avenue in the Greater Toronto Area topped CAA’s list of 20 worst roads. This year, the street has undergone major road reconstruction and resurfacing. In 2009, the federal government announced it was providing infrastructure funding to Ontario as part of its economic stimulus plan, and 90 per cent of the roads on the list are slated for repairs.
