Known for its frequent closures and traffic backups, Hamilton’s Barton St. E. takes first place on the list of Ontario’s worst road for the second time in a row.

The list curated by CAA, a travel insurance company, showed that the road first appeared on the top 10 list in 2019 for its persistent issues with potholes and severe alligator cracking in the pavement that led to its distinction.

Taking second and third place are Eglinton Ave. W. in Toronto and County Rd. 49 in Prince Edward County.
