Where is Saskatchewan’s “worst” road?
Starting Monday, Saskatchewan residents once again have a chance to offer their thoughts on the matter.
CAA Saskatchewan spokesperson Christine Niemczyk said a variety of determinants can factor into voters decision.
“Potholes are a problem,” noted Niemczyk. “Crumbling pavement, poor road signs, lack of cycling or walking infrastructure.”
“Maybe traffic congestion is also a problem.”
The winner of the dubious distinction in 2017, was Saskatchewan 155 in La Loche, a stretch of road Niemczyk admits had become a concern for motorists for a few years.
She said this campaign really helps underline the importance of safe road conditions.
“We know that, particularly in north part of the province, those roads are lifelines to residents and tourists,” she said. “That’s why we feel, at CAA, as safety advocates for road users of all ages, it’s important to hear from the roads users themselves who are using them.”
Nomination and voting for the province’s worst road can be done on the CAA Saskatchewan website until May 6th, with the results shared the following day.
