CAA Manitoba has come out with its Top 10 list of Worst Roads in Manitoba. Topping the list for 2022 is Provincial Road 307, which connects Seven Sisters Falls through the Whiteshell Provincial Park.

When voting for their worst road, CAA Manitoba asked Manitobans to not only think about potholes, but lack of active transportation paths, lack of safe and accessible access, poor or no signage, bad design or poor maintenance.

"This is the first time a rural road has made the top of our list," says Heather Mack, Manager, Government and Community Services. "But, it's not a surprise, more rural roads have been making our Top 10 list as the annual contest goes on."

A resident who lives near Otter Falls tells CAA Manitoba that the road is even worse in the winter, thanks to how much the road heaves in the cold.

"It just comes up and if you aren't careful, you go flying," he says, noting the province has erected warning signs but has not fixed the problem.

Last week the road was closed due to overland flooding.

1. Provincial Road 307
