The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) wrapped up its annual Worst Roads Campaign Thursday morning after more than 6 100 votes were cast for hundreds of roads across the province. This is more than any of CAA’s previous Worst Roads Campaign.

Winnipeg’s very own St. James Street took the second place position. St. James was the first place winner of the campaign in both 2014 and 2012 and was neck in neck with PR 280 until late Wednesday night.

CAA Manitoba hopes the campaign will shed light on the poor state of many of the province’s roads and encourage the government to improve them.
