Three western Manitoba roadways have landed on CAA Manitoba’s Top 10 worst roads list.

CAA’s worst roads campaign, which kicked off March 25, has already received nearly 3,700 votes for roughly 425 roads across Manitoba.

Among the Top 10 is Highway 10 in Boissevain sitting in the fifth spot, Brandon’s Victoria Avenue in seventh place, and Highway 34 in Holland in eighth place. Currently sitting at No. 1 is St. James Street in Winnipeg.

Manitobans can cast their vote by visiting caamanitoba.com/WorstRoads. Voters are able to pinpoint the stretch of road or intersection they believe is the worst, and indicate what infrastructure issue it has. Included in the list of issues to consider are cycling and pedestrian safety, traffic light synchronization, traffic congestion, as well as crumbling infrastructure.

"Obviously a lot of the conversation shifts to potholes, but it’s so much more than just that," said CAA Manitoba spokesperson Angèle Faucher. "A lot of people in this campaign will just vote for potholes, because it’s easy to see a pothole and it’s easy to see how that affects their car. But places like Highway 75 and Highway 10, those are main routes for things like tourism and industry ... so those are things that usually come to mind when we think of worst roads."

Voting closes Wednesday and the worst road winner will be announced Thursday.

Faucher said how CAA announces the winner will depend on which road ends up in the top spot.
