Dominion Road Dominating CAA Worst Roads Campaign
With two weeks to go in CAA’s Worst Roads Campaign, Niagara’s road users have put Dominion Road in Fort Erie in the region’s top spot and eighth in Ontario. Last year, the thoroughfare was voted the second worst road in all of the Niagara Region. The campaign began on March 23 with voters visiting www.CAAWorstRoads.com to submit their choice for the worst road in Niagara.
Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls was named Niagara’s worst road in 2014, but focus has now shifted to Dominion Road. “With a new front runner for this year’s Worst Roads Campaign in Niagara, it is evident that new roads are becoming a priority to residents,” said Rick Mauro, CAA Niagara’s vice president of marketing and public relations. “The addition of new streets, including Queenston Street in St. Catharines to our current top 10 worst roads list, indicates the new concerns people have with the conditions of Niagara’s roads."
The current top five Worst Roads in Niagara are:
1.Dominion Road, Fort Erie
2.Queenston Street, St. Catharines
3.Lakeshore Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake
4.Stanley Avenue, Niagara Falls
5.Drummond Road, Niagara Falls
CAA Niagara’s campaign runs until April 17. Niagara’s road users are encouraged to vote for their ‘worst road’ at www.CAAWorstRoads.com. Following the campaign, CAA will share its top 10 Worst Roads list with provincial and local government officials.
