Only six days left to vote in CAA Niagara's Worst Roads Campaign

Thorold, ON (April 26, 2017) – With just six days to go in CAA Niagara’s Worst Roads Campaign, Queenston Street is in the top spot once again.

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

The current top five worst roads in Niagara are:

  1. Queenston Street, St. Catharines
  2. Drummond Road, Niagara Falls
  3. Dominion Road, Fort Erie
  4. Ontario Street, St. Catharines
  5. Saint David’s Road, Thorold

Reports from Niagara Region and area municipalities confirm improvements are planned for the top five 2016 worst roads:

Queenston Street, St. Catharines: construction is under way and should be completed by the end of 2017.

Dominion Road, Fort Erie: Helena Street to Lakeshore Road is in the design stage with construction scheduled for 2018/19. Burleigh Road to Buffalo Road design stage completed and construction is scheduled for 2017/18.
