Hamilton’s Aberdeen Ave. dubbed Ontario’s worst road – Truck News

Hamilton’s Aberdeen Ave. has been voted the worst road in Ontario, as part of the CAA’s Worst Road for 2024 competition.

Voters put it forward due to potholes, poor maintenance and traffic congestion. It’s the first time Aberdeen Ave. has topped the list, which it made for the first time in 2021.

The CAA says its program is intended to get bad roads the attention they need for repairs.

“We know that the campaign works; time and time again, we see roads and infrastructure projects being moved up and budgets prioritized after the road has appeared on the list,” says Teresa Di Felice, assistant vice-president of government and community relations, CAA South Central Ontario. “For the last 21 years, the campaign has given Ontarians a voice to help them nominate the roads they believe are in need of urgent repair.”

More than 2,000 Ontario roads received votes, from 145 municipalities. Most respondents cited potholes as the primary reason for their vote, followed by poor maintenance, congestion and poor cycling infrastructure.

Here’s the Top 10 worst Ontario roads:

  • 1. Aberdeen Avenue, Hamilton
  • 2. Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto
  • 3. Barton Street East, Hamilton
  • 4. County Road 49, Prince Edward
  • 5. Hurontario Street, Mississauga
  • 6. Bloor Street West, Toronto
  • 7. Cedar Street North, Uxbridge
  • 8. Finch Avenue West, Toronto
  • 9. Lake Shore Boulevard East, Toronto
  • 10. Laclie Street, Orillia
