These are the worst roads in Quebec, as ranked by CAA

Part of a yearly initiative by CAA to spurn various levels of government into road-fixing action, the organization’s Worst Roads campaign seeks input from all road users, from cyclists and public transit riders to motorists.
So buckle up and hold on to your poutine as we take a look at what the voters in CAA-Quebec’s survey deemed the province’s most maddening macadam.
The crew at CAA recognizes while every road listed deserves its spot in the top 10, dozens of others could just as well have made it into one of the top slots. Armed with the list, CAA-Quebec went to municipal and provincial authorities and asked them to make a pledge to repair the crumbling infrastructure, promising to report back on that progress.
Eglinton Avenue East tops CAA’s worst roads list
Spox for CAA assert that lists like these do often result in some form of roadwork, whether it be a complete repave or a hurried patch job. About eight months after last year’s list was published, one road was fully repaired while four more were currently under the steely gaze of a construction supervisor. Two more were on the province’s “to-do” list, meaning seven of the ten roads received attention less than twelve months after the list was written.
Boulevard Gouin Est has been a perpetual habitant of these lists, having the dubious accomplishment of showing up every year since the list’s inception. It landed in first spot this year, first spot last year, and somewhere in the top 10 at various other times. Running about fifty kilometres from Senneville in the west to Pointe-aux-Trembles in the east, it is said to be the longest stretch of road on the island. Work has started on it and will continue well into 2020.
