Highway 24 near Leoville was named the province’s worst roadway during CAA Saskatchewan’s annual vote by motorists.

Highway 24 runs north of Highway 3 for 55 kilometres from Spiritwood up past Leoville to Chitek Lake.

The organization received 4,651 votes from April 1-25, up from 2,800 votes in 2013 and 2,900 votes in 2012. 

The vote had more of a northern flair this year, with highways near La Loche, Paradise Hill, Carrot River, Île-à-la-Crosse, Patuanak and Cumberland House all cracking the top 10.

Here are the top finishers.

1. Highway 24, Leoville

2. Highway 155, La Loche 

3. Highway 21, Paradise Hill

4. Highway 44, Eston

5. Highway 51, Major

7. Highway 908 Île-à-la-Crosse

8. Highway 918, Patuanak

9. Highway 123, Cumberland House

10. Highway 51, Kerrobert

CAA said in order to qualify, a road must be in general disrepair with potholes, cracks or severe rutting. It can also have poor signage, be congested or too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.
