SASKATOON – Drivers have picked a new highway as Saskatchewan’s worst road of 2014.
The third annual Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) Saskatchewan worst roads campaign received a record-breaking 4,651 votes this year between April 1-25.
A road qualified as a “worst” if it is riddled with potholes, severe rutting, has poor signage or poses a safety hazard to motorists.
“The purpose of the campaign is to spotlight troublesome and even dangerous road conditions in the province and to address those roads in most need of attention with government authorities,” said Christine Niemczyk, director of corporate communications for CAA Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan’s 10 worst roads of 2014:
- Highway 24, Leoville
- Highway 155, La Loche
- Highway 21, Paradise Hill
- Highway 44, Eston
- Highway 51, Major
- Northern Woods and Water Route, Carrot River
- Highway 908 Île-à-la-Crosse
- Highway 918, Patuanak
- Highway 123, Cumberland House
- Highway 51, Kerrobert
The worst road of 2013 campaign was Highway 123 near Cumberland House, Sask.
CAA will forward this year’s list to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.
