McLeod Road takes top spot as Niagara’s worst road
THOROLD, ON (May 30, 2019) – McLeod Road in Niagara Falls is Niagara’s worst road, according to CAA’s 16th annual Worst Roads campaign. McLeod, having climbed its way up the list from ninth in 2017 to second in 2018, surpassed Drummond Road to claim this year’s title.
