The Worst Road in Norfolk County

Worst Roads

I avoid driving down Radical Road going into Port Dover. Instead I’ll drive down Highway 6 which takes me longer and is not as scenic. The condition of Radical Road is far worse than any pounding I’ve experienced riding a boat through Lake Erie’s biggest waves (okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration). You can see for yourself here.

Again this year, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), along with the Ontario Road Builders’ Association, is calling on road users across Ontario to vote for the province’s worst roads.

CAA states “Our goal is to raise awareness about the need for improved infrastructure in our communities. This year, in addition to the Ontario Top 10 list, CAA is introducing a series of regional Top 5 lists.”

At the end of this year’s campaign, CAA will verify the roads voted for, publish the lists and share the results with key influencers in Ontario’s provincial and municipal governments.

Since the inception of the campaign, CAA reports that “tens of thousands of Ontarians have voted over the years, and approximately 90% of the roads on past lists have been (or are scheduled to be) repaired!

On Monday when CAA launched 2015’s campaign, Radical Road quickly moved into first place as the worst road in Ontario. But the campaign continues until April 17 so we need to keep drawing attention to the deteriorating condition of the road.

If you agree with me that Norfolk County’s Radical Road is the worst road, cast your vote by clicking here. When you vote you will be entered for a chance to win 1-of-3 $100 gas cards and the grand prize of FREE gas for a year!

Spread the word and help draw provincial attention to the poor condition of our Radical Road by sharing this post using the social media icons below.

  1. Main Street Port Dover is the worst road in Norfolk and it’s a disgrace. Our town brings in a fortune in tourism and it should be reflected in our infrastructure.

  2. I just wanted to add that Norfolk County has many, many excellent roads that are maintained well by our Roads Division. Given that a small rural community must maintain the equivalent of a length of asphalt from here to Pheonix, Arizona, every year, I think we do a good job. Certainly, we maintain our roads as good as the next community – and we can assure investors and tourists that they will, for the most part, have a positive experience in Norfolk County.
