Take a bumpy ride on Hamilton's worst road
Burlington Street voted one of Ontario's worst roads in annual CAA poll
Burlington Street East once again made the Canadian Automobile Association’s list of the 10 worst roads in Ontario.
The north-end thoroughfare was voted to the No. 5 spot this year, down three from 2013.
Toronto’s Dufferin Street topped the 2014 list — which was released on Thursday — earning the infamous distinction for the second year in a row.
More than 2,000 roads across the province were nominated for the annual vote. Ontarians then voted online this spring to determine on which of the province's roads are in the worst state of repair.
Seven of the finalists were in Toronto, while Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Hamilton had one road each appear on the list.
Here's CAA's 2014 list of Ontario's worst roads:
- Dufferin Street (Toronto)
- Stanley Avenue (Niagara Falls)
- Kipling Avenue (Toronto)
- Finch Avenue West (Toronto)
- Burlington Street East (Hamilton)
- Bayview Avenue (Toronto)
- Carling Avenue (Ottawa)
- Markham Road (Toronto)
- Lawrence Avenue East (Toronto)
- Wilson Avenue (Toronto)
