Only four days left to vote in CAA Niagara’s Worst Roads Campaign

Thorold, ON (April 10, 2018) – With just four days to go in CAA Niagara’s Worst Roads Campaign, Drummond Road is topping the charts.

This year, more than 200 different roads in Niagara have been nominated by drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, with 93 per cent of the voters indicating “potholes and crumbling pavement” as the reason for selecting a road.

The current top five worst roads in Niagara are:
1. Drummond Road, Niagara Falls
2. Pelham Road, St. Catharines
3. McLeod Road, Niagara Falls
4. Ontario Street, St. Catharines
5. Sider Road, Fort Erie

Reports from Niagara Region and area municipalities confirm improvements are planned for the top five 2017 worst roads:

Queenston Street, St. Catharines: Utility work, including sanitary sewer and watermain replacement, was completed last year. Top course asphalt is scheduled for this year.

Drummond Road, Niagara Falls: Scheduled for major capital expenditures in the next 10 years. Road resurfacing between Thorold Stone Road and Morrison Street could begin in 2020, if not sooner.
