Eglinton Avenue East was just ranked the worst road in Ontario

Toronto loves topping list rankings, especially when it comes to how livable or romantic the city is. But, some lists are the type you don't want to be on.

Unfortunately, one of those lists features Toronto in the top spot today. 

CAA, one of Canada's largest automobile services, just published its list of the worst roads in the province

At the very top of that list: Eglinton Avenue East. 

The stretch of Eglinton named 'worst road in Ontario' earned its title because of transit construction. The Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction has become notorious for its destruction of the street, leaving potholes, closed lanes, debris, and delays in its wake. 

This wasn't Toronto's only chance at the title however, as Dufferin, Sheppard East, and Bathurst also all cracked the top ten. 

Here's the full list of Worst Roads in Ontario for 2019:

  1. Eglinton Avenue East - Toronto
  2. Riverdale Drive - Washago
  3. Dufferin Street - Toronto
  4. County Road 49 - Prince Edward
  5. Barton Street East - Hamilton
  6. Burlington Street East - Hamilton
  7. Avondale Road - Belleville
  8. Sheppard Avenue East - Toronto
  9. Carnegie Beach Road - Scugog
  10. Bathurst Street - Toronto
