The list of the ten worst roads in Quebec was published Tuesday by CAA-Quebec.
After about 10,000 votes were casts by drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, CAA says the ‘winner’ is Kilmar Rd. a “decrepit stretch of asphalt” in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, in the Laurentians.
Rounding out the top three are Newton Rd in Mascouche in the Lanaudière and Gouin Blvd. E in Montreal.
CAA-Quebec said five of the ten worst roads this year were on the charts in 2015 and 2016, but that nine of the top ten roads were repaired or were included in a medium- to long-term rehabilitation plan, with $15 million invested or slated to be.
“There are some improvements that are made,” said CAA-Quebec spokesperson Annie Gauthier. “But when some improvements are happening (in one place), by that time other roads are continuing to get older and to be more cracked and to be more dangerous for road users.”
All cities affected by a route have been notified in writing and CAA-Quebec said it will follow up in the coming months.
