Timmins Roads Top CAA's Worst Road List for 2015



On a daily basis, Canadian roads and streets are relied upon to provide an artery for our general transportation. Our dependence on the connections from place to place leads many of us to For years in Ontario, CAA has been asking drivers in regions across the country to name streets and roads that has tried vehicles as well as patience of motorists. The 2015 edition of the CAA's Worst Roads list showed how much Ontarian drivers wanted to make their opinions count. Overall voting for the 2015 campaign was 26 percent higher across Ontario compared to the previous year.

This year’s Worst Road voting results saw a different name replacing the three-year reign of Toronto. Timmins has grabbed the top two spots on this year’s CAA vote. Algonquin Boulevard West and Algonquin Boulevard East has been highlighted as Ontario’s worst stretch of travel on wheels. Timmins’ appearance on the list was the result of a community campaign on the residents of the area. Timmin Mayor Steve Black was also part of the 2015 initiative to call-out Algonquin Boulevard to provincial attention. “I am thankful to the residents of Timmins who rallied together with my support to ensure our provincial connecting link roads finished in the top 10,” said Mayor Black.

Toronto has frequent resided as the top-charting city on the CAA's Worst Roads lists year-after-year. A highly-populated city with constant high-volume commuting, it should be of little surprise to see Toronto appearing on the list twice. Third place in the 2015 voting, Dufferin Street has been demoted being the top position in the CAA Worst Roads list after three years. A list where demotion as well as complete removal is envious, the Worst Roads ranking for Dufferin Street has been due to maintenance undertaken by the city this year. Resurfacing and repairs to the roadway started earlier this month and will be completed in late October. Toronto’s Bayview Avenue has also made the CAA list in 10th place. Resurfacing and road repairs have also been commissioned to start on the stretch of Bayview Avenue in June. For what is now the largest city in Canada, Toronto has a legacy for poor roads. Prior to the foundation of Toronto, the Canadian city was nicknamed “Muddy York” resulting through the lack of paved roads and no storm sewers.

The following list is the 2015 CAA's Worst Roads list Top 10 in the province of Ontario

 
  1. Algonquin Blvd. W., Timmins
  2. Algonquin Blvd. E., Timmins
  3. Dufferin Street, Toronto
  4. Highway 144, Greater Sudbury
